During the Level II Fieldwork experience, OTD students must be supervised by a licensed occupational therapist with a minimum of one year of experience in their respective practice area. For students participating in non-traditional experiences, the supervising occupational therapist must have a minimum of three years’ experience to be a fieldwork educator. The KGI OTD program is committed to providing training and support to all therapists interested in partnering together with our program to provide excellence in fieldwork supervision to our students.
