Effective July 1, 2016, fieldwork supervision of a Level II student will be acceptable to meet your continuing education requirements for non-patient related objectives. As a reminder, no more than 1/3 of your total required hours can have non-patient related objectives. This guideline now reads as follows (Level II fieldwork supervision is underlined here to reflect the change):
No more than a 1/3 of your total required hours may be academic, administrative, management, Level II fieldwork supervision or presentation hours with the remainder being direct patient objectives.
A letter from the student’s school or a copy of the AOTA student form with your name and signature indicating you as one of the primary supervisors will be required for proof to meet your requirements. The student must complete fieldwork after July 1, 2016 to be used for your next renewal.
