Postcards from the Field
For the second year in a row, we have asked our Level 1 students to share some of the experiences they have had on their first placement. We have a lot of fun seeing the diverse practice areas and locations are students are in and how excited they are to apply their skills in the real world. Here are a few of the 'postcards' we received.
|Kayla and Alice are completing an Independent Community Placement at Ambrose Place in Edmonton and have enjoyed participating in a number of cultural activities in the Indigenous community.|
|Paula is with the Stroke Early Supported Discharge Program in Grand Prairie. She writes that one of her client's valued activities is caring for her pet donkeys, so Paula got to analyze what skills are involved in navigating this task!|
|Chelsea at Edmonton Catholic Schools got to watch the students excitement with the hatching of the ducklings.|
|Kimberley sends greetings from Saskatoon City Hospital on her way to the operating room to observe a Total Knee Replacement. |
The students are finished this week and then will have the summer off before starting year 2 in September. In the meantime, most the current Year 2s will head out on their first senior placement (Level 3A) next week. Thank you to all the great teams out there supporting the MScOT students.
