Program Details

The Jefferson Moss-Magee Rehabilitation Occupational Therapy Fellowship Program begins in August of each year and runs for 53 consecutive weeks. The program provides an intensive, 1-year experience combining clinical and didactic learning opportunities.

The foundation of the program is over 350 hours of one-on-one mentoring with expert clinicians. This occurs concurrently with clinical practice as a treating therapist, as the fellow moves through several clinical rotations within the diagnostic services at the Moss facility in Elkins Park. The fellow will also receive over 100 hours of didactic instruction through a curriculum designed to comprehensively address occupational therapy practice in physical rehabilitation.

Components of the program include structured learning experiences in areas related to clinical specialty evaluations, teaching, support groups, research, and scientific inquiry.

Fellowship graduates will complete activities to support a board certification application for physical rehabilitation from the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) that includes structured, reflective activities.
