As the fields of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology are faced with increased demands for maintaining current knowledge and advanced skills in medically-related areas, as well as meeting increased competencies across a variety of treatment areas to meet broader practice needs, the professional preparation of our graduate students has come under criticism. Off-site settings complain that students are not receiving the clinical knowledge and skills in medical areas—including dysphagia, traumatic brain injury, tracheotomized and ventilator-dependent patients—necessary to practice in medical settings and even in many school settings. University programs, with staffing and budget cuts, are faced with teaching more information and skills without increasing the costs and/or length of the training program. In order to meet the challenge of professional preparation in these demanding times, collaboration between universities and off-site practice settings is essential.
