MISSION

To provide beginner and experienced clinicians across medical settings with a high quality, dynamic learning experience encompassing the latest evidence-based practice (EBP) for assessment/treatment and to provide a unique opportunity for interactive learning experiences with modern technology and instrumentation in medical speech-language pathology.

This symposium addresses the needs of Medical SLPs who have the responsibility of assessing/treating a wide-range of areas utilizing current clinical evidence-based practices. Through this master-clinician driven symposium, based in research, Medical SLPs will receive the latest clinical tools to effectively serve patients “on Monday”. This symposium will also provide opportunities for Medical SLPs to network, share ideas, and meet “online” colleagues and presenters in-person.
