Speech-Language Pathologist Students

Brooks Rehabilitation offers a full-time (40 hours/week), semester-long experience for students who are seeking to complete their graduate level coursework in speech-language pathology at a university accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA). Externships take place in one of our settings including inpatient rehabilitation, acute care, outpatient, the Brooks Aphasia Center, and skilled nursing facilities. Our continuum of care serves a diverse population including but not limited to orthopedic, geriatric, pediatric, and neurologic patients. The acuity of our patient population at inpatient is such, that externs receive a complex medical experience furthering their skills in severe dysphagia management and collaborative trach management. Students will be immersed in daily routines allowing them to learn and utilize evidence-based practice and the latest technologies.

Students will be afforded the opportunity to collaborate on a multi-disciplinary team including physical therapy, occupational therapy, case management, nursing, medical practitioners, dieticians, psychologists, recreational therapists, and more candidates are selected on the basis of their academic record, prior experiences, and specific areas of interest.
