The clinical fellowship year (CFY) is a requirement for all those wishing to obtain ASHA certification. The Clinical Certification Board (CCB) referred to the clinical fellowship year as the “transition between student and independent provider of clinical services” (2000, p. 3). The CCB noted the purpose of the clinical fellowship to be fourfold. These included (a) “integration and application of theoretical knowledge, (b) assessment of abilities, (c) development and refinement of clinical skills, and (d) transition from constant supervision to being an independent clinician” (p. 3).
Both the clinician and supervisor enter into the CFY agreeing to work together and follow the guidelines set forth in order for successful completion. ASHA (1994) emphasizes, “The clinical fellowship supervisor, whatever the setting, is a role model for the beginning professional. Supervisors have influence that lasts beyond the year of intensive contact.” (p. 2)
