This doctoral capstone project was completed through a partnership with Nashville State Community College’s (NSCC) Occupational Therapy Assistant Program. To address clinician burnout from supervising students during level I fieldworks, NSCC is in the early stages of researching, planning, and implementing the SELTEC: Service and Experiential Learning Through Engagement in the Community Model for their Level I Fieldwork placements. The SELTEC model’s main objective is to provide quality and consistent level I fieldwork by using a faculty-led approach in partnership with community based organizations to decrease the burden on fieldwork sites and educators. This project aimed to create a manual and related resources to the SELTEC Model for the NSCC OTA program to assist the OTA program with a FW Level I program shift.
