The Field Education Department requires that new field instructors receive training in how to meet the educational responsibilities involved in supervising M.S. students. To be eligible for training, a new field instructor:

  • must have been out of social work school for at least three years.
  • must be a licensed social worker (LMSW or LCSW).
  • must be enrolled in or have completed a Seminar in Field Instruction (SIFI) at an accredited school of social work.
