At Jefferson, students begin Level I Fieldwork in their very first semester, and continue with fieldwork placements, or some type of client experience, every semester from then on. The scheduling varies from semester to semester, but typically students complete from 4-8 site visits on Thursdays during the semester. Summer placements occur over 2 weeks (10 days).
Each student is required to successfully complete a total of two, full time, 12-week Level II placements. You should probably think of it as working a 40-hour work week for 3 months in one setting, then another three months in a different setting. Schedules do vary, though. For example, days in hospitals can be longer, and days in school systems can be shorter. Some sites may have evening hours, others weekend hours. Some weekly schedules involve four 10-hour days. Part-time fieldwork may be available in special situations, and is determined on a case-by-case basis.
