Grad Student Panel! Here are some highlights of what we learned:

  • How to choose a grad school
    • make a list of what's important to you! (research interests, clinical experiences you want, etc.)
    • know that some grad schools will give you general experience in many areas, while others will let you choose a "track" (ex: pediatric/school track, medical track, etc)
  • Grad school includes externships!
    • this is where you get assigned somewhere in the community to do clinical work (it's like your first job, without getting paid)
    • great opportunity to network! - may help you find a place to do your CFY
  • CFY = clinical fellowship year
    • first year after completing your master's degree
    • supervised
    • must complete this to be a licensed SLP
  • Find out if the grad school you end up going to offers a summer rotation to help you get your feet wet before the fall!
