Kaufmann, T, Maloney, P and Schoo A (2013) describe the financial considerations of supervising a student in private practice placement as business issues.  These include fees, target revenues, costs for labour, taxes, equipment, supplies, overhead, medico-legal concerns and marketing.  Allowing the student an opportunity to understand or be exposed to this aspect of private practice would be a valuable learning experience and may be invaluable if the student pursues a career in the private practice sector upon graduation.

As mentioned earlier, as there are no defined guidelines regarding this issue, it is important that you provide clear communication to the client or paying party about the nature of fees at your practice.
