|Abstract: ||A comparison of two types of fieldwork was undertaken with 26 social
work students in a large urban hospital. The first group was assigned to
a traditional, year long placement. The second group was assigned to
three successive placements of approximately 10 weeks each. The impact
of these two types of placement on students’ general sense of
self-efficacy, self-efficacy regarding specific hospital social work
activities and perceptions of the work environment, was assessed.
Initial results suggest that both groups produce virtually no change in
students’ general sense of selfefficacy, yet produce positive
changes in students’ self-efficacy regarding hospital social work.
In addition, results suggest that the fieldwork rotation used in the
second group may produce somewhat more positive views of the work
environment. Final version of the manuscript for citation: Cuzzi, L.
