The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is grateful for the ongoing support of the many ASHA-certified speech-language pathologists who serve as external clinical educators/preceptors to our graduate students. We are always looking to expand our portfolio of external placements for our students. If you are interested in becoming an external clinical educator/preceptor please contact us for more information.
