Perceptions of the Same Site Model (SSM) of fieldwork, where students complete a Level I and Level II fieldwork requirement in the same setting, were examined by survey. The benefits, drawbacks, and implications of the SSM are discussed.

The SSM survey results suggest that this model may be helpful in decreasing stress associated with fieldwork as experienced by students and fieldwork educators.
