Occupational Therapy Fellowship Outcomes Research

You are invited to participate in a research study about outcomes of occupational therapy fellowship programs. This study is being conducted by Creighton University occupational therapy students, Ashley Holahan, Jenna Kietzman, Jamie Knight, Madisyn McCarville, Sarah Schwarz, & faculty researcher Anna Domina, OTD, OTR/L. This study will review the professional outcomes of occupational therapy doctoral or master prepared practitioners who have and have not completed an occupational therapy fellowship. Factors compared will include job satisfaction, professional development, mentorship and transition into the workforce. Understanding the outcomes of an occupational therapy fellowship program will provide benefits for students, employers, and the field of occupational therapy. This knowledge of fellowship outcomes will help students to better understand their options for education and the outcomes of completing a fellowship program.  

The study will be administered through Qualtrics and will consist of multiple choice, close ended Likert Scale questions, and open-ended questions.  The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
All responses are voluntary, and participants may withdraw at any time throughout the survey.

You will not experience any immediate risks for participating in this study. Certain questions on the survey require the participant to respond to personal information which may cause minimal discomfort.  
You will benefit from completing this study by sharing personal experiences that may contribute to the field of occupational therapy.
Data obtained from this research study will remain confidential and will only be obtainable by the researchers including Creighton University’s faculty that will be acting as a research advisor. Data will be stored in a secured database that is password protected. Also, responses will be reported as aggregate and not as individual.
