Students will begin clinical practicum their first semester of graduate school. The clinical practicum coursework and internship will provide the 400 hours of supervised clinical experiences required for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC).
Typically, all students enrolled in CSD 5565 Practicum II will be assigned to on-campus sites and will be supervised by Appalachian faculty. Subsequent practicum assignments will involve travel to off-campus sites and will ensure a diverse clinical experience. Whenever possible, student requests for specific practicum sites will be considered.
The capstone practicum experience of the graduate program is the internship completed during the final semester. More detailed information about clinical practicum is available from the Clinic Manual.
