OT students are faced with a variety of challenges in today’s diverse healthcare system. Educators need to ensure there are placements that best prepare them for these demands. Role-emerging fieldwork offers a distinct opportunity to both meet curricular requirements and afford students the chance to develop skills unique to this type of placement. The purpose of this mixed-methods study is to examine the experiences of OT students who engaged in a role-emerging fieldwork.
