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.

SLP CFY Requirements

An SLP is ready to start their clinical fellowship year after completing an undergraduate program in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) and a CAA-Accredited Graduate Degree Program in Speech-Language Pathology/Communicative Sciences and Disorders.

During the CFY, SLPs will spend 36 weeks (or 1,260 hours) under a mentor to help them transition into their professional career.

As a CF SLP, the goal is to apply everything learned in school and become an independent clinician. SLPs must spend at least 80% of their clinical fellowship year in direct clinical contact helping the management of disorders such as assessment/diagnostic evaluations, treatment, IEPs, or other duties that fit within the Scope of Practice in Speech-Language Pathology as defined by ASHA. After completing the CFY, an SLP must take a national exam to earn a license in the state they wish to practice.
