Graduate education programs are experiencing challenges in placing students in practicum settings that enable them to meet ASHA certification requirements. Recent changes in the health care arena have dramatically changed service models within health care settings. In some cases, these changes have made it difficult for speech-language pathologists to take on the added responsibilities associated with supervision of a student clinician. For example, recent guidelines put forth by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS, formerly HCFA) have limited the reimbursement of services provided by student clinicians. The result is that students are having difficulty gaining sufficient experiences and practicum hours within health care placement settings. The problems is not limited to health care setting; public schools are reporting shortages in masters level speech-language pathologists, especially in more rural areas. This limits students’ placement options within the education sector.
