Clinical Fellowship in Speech–Language Pathology
NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation offers a Clinical Fellowship in Speech–Language Pathology to interested applicants who wish to become licensed providers of speech–language pathology clinical services.
During the nine-month program, clinical specialists mentor fellows to help them develop and refine their speech–language pathology skills with an emphasis on clinical care, education, and research endeavors. Under clinical supervision, you have the opportunity to treat patients with significant medical comorbidities and clinical profiles. You also get firsthand experience helping patients with voice-related injuries and conditions and communication and swallowing difficulties.
Working side by side with care teams made up of physicians, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, neuropsychologists, vocational therapists, registered dieticians, and social workers, you receive training that emphasizes Rusk Rehabilitation’s philosophy of treating the whole patient and not just the patient’s physical disability, injury, or disease.
Opportunities may be available in one of the following concentration areas:
- acute care
- outpatient pediatric airway management
- voice management
- adult swallowing
- adult neurogenic language
We align the guidelines for clinical fellow training with New York State and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
