There is a need to better prepare students in dysphagia. In the medical setting, dysphagia often represents a significant portion of the speech-language pathologist’s caseload. Unfortunately, the academic preparation and the models of clinical supervision required to teach dysphagia are often not up to the task of providing sufficient education in this area. An integral part of student training is the role of the practicing speech-language pathologist who provides supervision in practicum placements.
This article will describe several aspects of being an effective clinical supervisor while still maintaining professional responsibilities to patients. These aspects include:
  1. What to expect from and what to provide to the university;

  2. Preparing to be a supervisor;

  3. Preparing a good learning site;

  4. Student responsibilities for self-learning;

  5. Planning for the student practicum;

  6. Philosophy of supervision.
