Improving Clinical Training for Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists
Academic programs in audiology and speech-language pathology provide education and training to students preparing for challenging and ever-expanding professions. Finding innovative ways to ensure appropriate training is a constant struggle. In addition, students report high levels of stress as they navigate school demands. This journal self-study explores how programs are using simulation, peer-assisted learning, and mindfulness practice to address these concerns. While focused on academic training, these articles will also benefit clinical supervisors as well as practicing clinicians looking to find new training methods for themselves and colleagues.
