Clinical Experience Requirements

In order to meet the requirements for ASHA’s Certificate of Clinical Competency (CCC), students must complete a minimum of 1820 hours of supervised, direct clinical experience with individuals with a variety of hearing disorders and ages. Students begin their clinical education in the Department’s Center for Language, Speech, and Hearing, which offers a wide range of diagnostic and rehabilitative services to individuals in the general community. Students then gain additional clinical experience at several of the Department’s numerous off-campus cooperating programs (hospitals, private clinics, schools for the deaf, etc.). The Au.D. program culminates in an intensive fourth year residency experience.
