Clinical Entry-Level Training in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology

Wayne State University's clinical entry-level programs in audiology and speech-language pathology provide student clinicians with training opportunities in the department's own clinics and in a wide variety of placements throughout the Detroit Metro area, including the possibility of placements out-of-state and in Canada.

Clinical training begins in the first semester of both programs and is a component of the required coursework every semester. Students in both audiology and speech-language pathology are placed in a full-time clinical externship during the final phase of their training. In this final, full-time placement students are encouraged to explore an area of interest that they would likely pursue as a future career.
