Clinical field education is integral to the Speech@NYU learning experience, and our program ensures you receive the face-to-face, hands-on training you need to become a well-rounded and versatile SLP.
The clinical field training component comprises five in-person experiences: two on-campus immersions at NYU’s New York City campus, and three field placements at clinical sites near your area. You’ll work with a dedicated field placement specialist to identify sites that meet NYU’s high academic standards and provide diverse learning opportunities.
Clinical Practicum I: Pre-Clinic and On-Campus Immersion
Clinical Practicum II: Diagnostic Assessment and On-Campus Immersion
Clinical Field Placement III: Treatment
Clinical Field Placement IV: Pediatrics
Clinical Field Placement V: Adults
If you have not completed the required number of clinical hours by the conclusion of Clinical Field Placement V, you may need to complete an additional, one-credit placement, Clinical Field Placement VI.
