University of the Pacific (Pacific), in partnership with the national search firm, Scott Healy & Associates, invites applications and nominations for the position of Assistant/Associate Clinical Professor & Academic Fieldwork Coordinator (AFWC) for the Department of Occupational Therapy (OT), which is housed and delivered on the Sacramento campus. Reporting to the Program Director of the entry level Doctorate in OT program, the AFWC is primarily responsible for coordinating the clinical education portion of the OTD curriculum. As this position requires significant contact with students, outside constituents, professional consortiums, and AFWC faculty at the other programs, the AFWC’s teaching responsibilities have been significantly reduced, in order to ensure that the needs of the field work program are being met. The successful applicant is expected to establish a collaborative scholarship agenda as well as contribute to graduate mentoring that supports diversity and inclusion efforts.
Pacific's innovative Doctor of Occupational Therapy program prepares students to help people of all ages live their best lives by working through injury, disability and illness and practicing overall wellness and vitality in their daily routines. Instruction is delivered in an accelerated format offering interdisciplinary courses via innovative learning strategies, classroom meetings and simulation labs. Program graduates will be prepared to promote integrated health and wellness behaviors across the life-span for individuals and diverse communities. At Pacific, occupational therapy academic coursework and fieldwork are integrated into a curriculum that is founded on a biopsychosocial model, client-centered and designed to meet the diverse needs of the communities we serve.
