Hi everyone! My name is Kimmie Garner and I am a Field Liaison/Seminar Instructor for the University of Montana's Online MSW Program.
We have been having ongoing discussions around private practice practicum placements and are curious about specific policies or practices in place to help guide these types of increasingly common placements.
We are curious: how are other Schools of Social Work approaching private practice placements? What policies do you have in place? If you already have policies in place, could you please share examples of your Memorandums of Understanding and/or policy guidelines for students requesting and completing private practice placements?
Thank you so much!

Susie, thank you so much for your comprehensive response! I appreciate the depth and breadth of the criteria MSU - Denver has created related to private practice placements. I will absolutely share back anything else I learn from others who respond to this thread and look forward to taking the excellent information you've shared back to our Field Education team! Wishing you a restorative holiday.
