SHSP offers a medically-oriented program in Medical Speech-Language Pathology, specifically designed to prepare graduates to pursue a career path in a health care setting. This Master of Science program provides entry-level professional education: Our curriculum accomodates students who do not have an undergraduate degree in speech-language pathology without the need for additional coursework. Instead, these students are provided with a self-directed program of study that introduces them to basic concepts in the field.
Located in an academic health center environment, the program draws on unique academic and clinical resources to teach the skills required of speech-language pathologists as they fill an expanding role in such clinical settings as hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and skilled nursing facilities.
Our medically-oriented education and training are enriched by the integration of resources from NYMC's three schools: the School of Health Sciences and Practice, the Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences, and the School of Medicine. Faculty and students use state-of-the-art clinical and technological resources to advance the field of communication science through research and clinical care. Gross anatomy is taught during the first year by the same faculty who teach our medical students. Coursework emphasizes diagnosis and treatment of medically-involved patients from pediatrics through geriatrics. Clinical rotations include tertiary care hospitals, rehabilitation centers, outpatient clinics, public and specialized school settings.
We also offer the NYS Certificate for Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities (TSSLD).
Completion of the program leads to qualification for licensure and credentials necessary for entry into the profession. In addition to preparing graduates to meet the health care needs of many populations in a variety of settings, the program is a regional resource for information and continuing professional education in speech-language pathology.
The program admits full-time day students only, for an intensive twenty-month program.
