PRESENTER: Julia McCaffrey, MS,CCC-SLP
AUDIENCE: Undergraduate, graduate students, Clinical Fellows, Clinicians who would like to transition from school-based SLP to medical-based SLP.
Description: In 2019, only 12.4% of ASHA’s 181,628 registered SLP’s reported working primarily in a “hospital”. A frequent complaint of graduate students and prospective CFY’s with a strong interest in becoming a medical SLP is that it’s exceptionally difficult to get your foot in the door in the hospital setting. Many ask- how do I begin my hospital SLP career if no one will even interview me without having had prior hospital SLP work experience? This 60-minute webinar plus Q&A will offer advice and tips from a hospital based SLP manager on how to improve your chances of getting that desired job in the hospital setting.
Julia has worked as a medical SLP for 18 years, in a wide variety of settings including acute care, inpatient rehab, LTAC, outpatient, and home health. She received her Masters of Science in Speech Language Pathology from Vanderbilt University. In 2017, she accepted a position as manager for the SLP department at a large inpatient rehab hospital in Los Angeles. She feels very fortunate to currently supervise a team of 27 exceptionally dedicated and amazing SLP’s.
