Various models of practice placement are available. This study examined students' perceptions and compared models (role established versus role emerging). One hundred fifty-five OT students completed questionnaires pre- and post-placement. A significant increase was found in personal and professional skills. Significantly higher community scores were found in role emerging. Both models contribute to students' professional development, and role emerging may contribute to developing areas of practice in the community.
