Due to the COVID-19 situation and its impact on the School’s curriculum and availability of clinical externship sites, Externship schedules for the remainder of 2020 have been modified to accommodate COVID-related public health measures and consequent constraints. Please see Important Dates for specific information about SLP and Audiology externship rotations.
The School of Audiology and Speech Sciences is committed to maintaining high standards of academic and clinical education that will enable students to develop the competencies necessary for successfully completing their programs and being prepared to enter clinical practice. Any COVID-related modifications to their program will uphold these standards of excellence.
The 2021 Externship rotations are currently being planned. Please continue to check this website for updates.
Our Sincere Thanks:
Our students are excited about their clinical externships and look forward to them with eager anticipation. It is through your guidance that students learn to put their knowledge into practice, to reflect on their successes and their setbacks, and to grow as young professionals. We thank you for your commitment to the next generation of speech-language pathologists and audiologists.
Where have we sent our students for Clinical Externships?
Each and every year, at least 192 Major Externships and 48 Minors happen. All students are required to relocate outside the Greater Vancouver Area for at least 2 Externships. Take a look at all our Externship sites for 2015 to 2019. Is your site here?
