The Advanced Certificate in Pediatric Dysphagia requires completion of 4 courses and 2 practica. Completion of this 18-credit certificate requires maintaining a GPA of 3.0 or above for all coursework and practica combined.
Courses are taught online, with strong faculty support throughout. Chat sessions will be regularly scheduled to ensure the material is being processed appropriately. Class discussions will also serve to clarify student concerns.
This coursework is accompanied by 2 practica (semester 2 and semester 3), where students work in neonatal intensive care units (NICU) as well in our on-campus outpatient clinic. Students will conduct feeding/swallowing evaluations and document these throughout the practicum experience. Expert supervisors will work with small groups of students as the clinical services are provided.
At present, the practica are conducted 4 times in semester 2 (Spring) and 4 times in semester 3 (Summer), over weekends. Students complete practica at the following locations, based on population/practicum:
