This summer we are excited to welcome four students from around the country to our internship program. We hold a strong commitment to education and are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the next generation of talented audiologists and speech-language pathologists.
The students enrolled in our internship program come from various Universities throughout the country and were offered the position after a competitive interview process. The program allows students the opportunity to obtain knowledge and clinical practice that exceeds the classroom.
New to the internship program this year is the addition of a weekly internship meeting allowing students to gain a greater perspective on private practice operations along with working on projects, case presentations and quality assurance. This new addition to the program will give students the opportunity to grow beyond clinical practice.
Meet our interns!
