Executive Summary

This transition plan will help me ease out of a student role into the role of an occupational therapist during my fieldwork experience. It will help me cope with the stress that accompanies changes in routine, expectations and life by preparing me with the tools and techniques for success.

  • My strengths are identified and the benefits and challenges of these strengths have been explored.
  • Time management is a skill that requires time budgeting and prioritizing, both of which are touched upon in this blog.
  • Communication skills impact everyday life, but must be adjusted to fit a professional setting in order to provide optimal treatment and foster a learning environment.
  • Professional behavior and the Code of Ethics are important concepts discussed especially since these expectations during fieldwork vary significantly from the role of a student.
