Clinical Practicums

Practicums are designed to enable students to obtain clinical skills under supervision and fulfill the hour requirements for clinical care experience established by New York State and the American Speech-Language Hearing Association. A seminar attached to each practicum covers the subject matter pertinent to that practicum, and students complete a minimum of 400 clock hours. The first therapy and diagnostic practicums (COC 621.1, 621.2) are done in-house, at the College's clinic. Subsequent practicums (COC 621.3, 621.5, 621.6) take place in various settings arranged by the College, such as schools, clinics, and hospitals. Students are directly supervised for no less than 25% of their treatment practicum hours and 50% of diagnostic practicum hours, in all settings.
