OTD Fieldwork COVID-19 Policy

Any occupational therapy student who is granted an exemption from the Methodist University COVID-19 vaccination policy will still be required to submit an exemption request at each fieldwork facility that requires a COVID-19 vaccine. Matriculating students must acknowledge that the university’s exemption process is separate from being granted an exemption at fieldwork sites and does not guarantee that the request will be granted. If an exemption request at a fieldwork site is denied or not available, the student will not be able to complete the rotation. The MU OTD program will not make accommodations for the student if an exemption is denied, which may result in failure to complete the program and/or delayed graduation.
