A nationwide survey was developed to identify the responsibilities and contextual factors that affect workload of academic fieldwork coordinators (AFWCs) and shed light on the patterns of practice that lead to workload satisfaction and challenges. Data for this descriptive study were collected via a questionnaire from OT assistant (37), MOT (54), and OTD (37) programs. Trends in workload responsibilities, variability in institutional and program-level practices, and supports and challenges experienced by AFWCs will be discussed.
