What is a speech-language pathology clinical fellowship year (SLP CFY)?
The clinical fellowship year is a time for an SLP to work under a mentor to apply and refine skills acquired in schooling and gain practical experience before becoming an independent practitioner.
For a newly graduated SLP, their clinical fellowship can be one of the most exciting - yet challenging - times of their career. That's why it is of the utmost importance to find a Clinical Fellowship Speech Pathology program dedicated to the success of their SLPs and the students they help.
The CFY can set the tone for an SLPs entire career. It helps them learn the industry and meet mentors they may lean on for the rest of their career.
