Call for Clinical Educators/Supervisors

Canadian audiology and speech-language pathology students need your help. 

Due to the COVID-19, Canadian universities are in critical need of clinical placements. As a result, many students in the Classes of 2021 and 2022 require placements to continue and complete their programs in order for them to graduate. Therefore, there is an exceptional need for clinical educators/supervisors/preceptors across the country to offer clinical experiences in virtual or in-person practice, as public health regulations allow.  

Being a clinical educator is an excellent opportunity to share your skills and knowledge and give back to your profession. Students can also support you since they are technology savvy and come with the latest knowledge on therapy and assessment practices. Guidance about Clinical Education/Supervision Models for Virtual and In-Person Placements During the Pandemic is available online

If you are able to assist us in any way, please contact the Academic Coordinator of Clinical Education at the university program that is closest to your region (see contact list below). If there is not a Canadian university in your region, please contact Jennifer Wadds at jennifer.wadds@utoronto.ca and your name will be added to a national list that programs will access to connect you with students who are from your area.

We appreciate your support of our future colleagues!

Thank you –
