Graduate Program Will be Offered in Partnership With Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Health System
Yeshiva University will introduce a new master of science degree program in speech-language pathology (SLP) in fall 2015. Students enrolled in the new program will have the opportunity to learn from the experienced clinicians and faculty of the Montefiore Health System and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and will have access to resources at both institutions. The program is approved by the State of New York Department of Higher Education and is seeking Accreditation Candidacy with the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the American Speech, Language and Hearing Association (ASHA). The official opening date is pending CAA accreditation.
The five-semester graduate program is designed to prepare students to become speech-language pathologists who are capable of working in hospitals, rehabilitative centers, university or college clinics, specialized clinical settings or private practice. The program was developed by Linda Carroll, Ph.D., speech pathologist, Department of Otolaryngology, Montefiore Medical Center, who will serve as director. Dr. Carroll is also an experienced voice therapist and was recently named a Fellow of ASHA.
“This master’s program is not only responsive to the needs of YU students who are interested in the health sciences, but also critical to the community as it seeks to hire accomplished speech-language therapists,” said Dr. Selma Botman, provost and vice president for academic affairs at YU. “We are fortunate to have Dr. Carroll, a nationally recognized expert in the field, lead this initiative.” Read the rest of this entry…Comments Off
