We are occupational therapy doctoral students seeking participants for a project entitled “Perceptions of the Educational Value of an Academic Clinic in Professional Graduate Programs”. Specifically, we are looking for any individual who is currently enrolled in or has graduated from a professional graduate program within the past five years. For the purposes of this study, a professional graduate program is defined as continued education, following an undergraduate degree or a previously completed degree, focused on a specific area of interest and on acquiring specialized skills for a profession or to do advanced research. Frequently internships and/or field experiences which offer the opportunity to practice professional skills are also a part of the curriculum. An academic clinic is a space attached to a college or university where students provide skilled services to the community with oversight from faculty, licensed professionals, or clinical instructors. The study is anonymous and should take approximately 30 minutes to complete. 


Our hope with this project is to better understand operations of academic clinics as well as the educational value of an academic clinic. In particular, we are interested in student and alumni perceptions of their education and readiness to enter the workforce. You do not need to have been involved in an academic clinic in order to participate. If you are interested in participating and feel you are an appropriate candidate for this survey, please click here


This project has received approval through Western New England University IRB, #116. You may contact our faculty mentor, Dr. Brittany Adams, at [email protected] with any questions regarding this project.”

My group has created a survey that aims to examine the understanding of practicing occupational and physical therapists regarding the policies and service delivery processes that are involved when we recommend wheelchair seating and positioning equipment for our clients in the United States. We hope that all practitioners will take this survey – those that are regularly involved in recommending wheelchair seating and positioning equipment, and those that never complete this task. The survey will help guide education to increase confidence and awareness with the service delivery process – which will help us advocate for our clients! Everything will be kept completely anonymous and your name will in no way be attached to your response.  If you agree to participate, please click the link below. If you have any questions or would like more details of the study, please email Cara Masselink at [email protected] Please share this with other physical and occupational therapists.

The purpose of this study is to understand and describe how Occupational Therapy (OT) faculty members perceive how their academic program implements Interprofessional Education (IPE) into their curricula. Interprofessional Education is standard in Occupational Therapy Curricula across the United States. This study will examine how OT programs implement IPE and correlate prior years of clinical experience to IPE readiness, perception, and preferred methods of faculty training. This study intends to add to the growing body of evidence related to IPE to direct the development of IPE training specific to IPE faculty's needs and preferences. 

  Your feedback regarding IPE is highly valued, especially as we continue to face the uncertainties of a pandemic health care crisis. Please click on the link below. I would be very appreciative if you would assist in distribution by posting this on your website, Facebook page and forwarding this link to your OT faculty colleagues. The 10-15-minute survey will anonymously collect data through Microsoft Forms.  

  Please contact me at [email protected] if you have any questions. Thank you for your participation.
