Staff Speech Pathologist
Speech pathologists are required to complete a 36-week post-graduate clinical fellowship under the direct supervision of a mentor in order to obtain a certificate of clinical competence (CCC) and full professional certification.
VA Boston offers two full-time fellowships for speech pathology trainees. These 2080- hour fellowships are offered in Geriatric Care and in Rehab/Acute Care. This opportunity fulfills the 36 weeks and 1,260-hour minimum clinical fellowship mandated by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA).
