Clinical Preceptor - Audiology
Posting Date January 25, 2017
Position Title Clinical Preceptor - Audiology
Vacancy # V-1246
Department Communication Sciences and Disorders
Division Academic Affairs
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:
Students enrolled in the AuD program in Audiology in the Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders are required to complete 1820 hours of clinical practica. The Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association, the agency that accredits programs in this profession, stipulates that students enrolled in clinical practica involving diagnosis of communication disorders must be supervised during at least 50% of their clinic interactions.
In August, 2009, the Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders moved to a newly renovated facility at 1515 Broad St. in Bloomfield. There we have a state-of-the-art Center for Audiology & Speech-Language Pathology. All students enroll in on-campus clinical practica for at least three semesters prior to going off-campus for other clinical experiences. It is the role of the Clinical Preceptor to work with students doing their on-campus placements. He/she must supervise each student individually. Initially the supervision will need to be 100% of the time; by the second or third semester it may be possible to decrease to 50 to 75% supervision. The Clinical Preceptor will provide each student with appropriate mentoring, feedback, and sometimes will also provide direct clinical service for patients in the Center for Audiology & Speech-Language Pathology.
