Clinical Assistant Program

Our Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic’s Clinical Assistant Program (CAP) provides undergraduates an opportunity to gain experience in our dynamic campus clinic. Clinical Assistants can explore areas of interest in our professions and earn observation hours towards certification. Assistants help prepare for and observe sessions, collect data, and may participate in sessions by the end of the semester. You can read more about it here.
