I completed my clinical fellowship about 7 years ago. I was right out of grad school and thinking I had all the answers. Then I started my first real job as a speech language pathologist and started feeling a little lost. I knew what to do with the students I was working with, but how was I supposed to go about getting my license and certified by ASHA? What paperwork was I supposed to complete and when? Where was my trusted graduate counselor to hold my hand through the process? Your CF can be an overwhelming experience to say the least.
I am beyond excited to introduce you all to this fantastic new resource that I am so happy to be a part of. ClinicalFellowship.org is a brand new website that is scheduled to launch at the beginning of March. This website was designed to be a hub of information for graduate students, new grads, and clinical fellows starting their career in the field of speech language pathology.
When you log into ClinicalFellowship.org, you will be given access to numerous short videos that will help you with all kinds of questions from:
what is a clinical fellowship?
what does it mean to be certified by ASHA?
what do you need to begin practicing?
how do I apply for certification?
how do I choose a setting and a mentor?
your first job
… just to name a few!
