Course Description

In episode 3 we talked about supervision from the perspective of a student, however, in this episode Michelle is joined by the charming Mrs. Juliana Miller, from Columbia, SC…and together they address problematic practicum placements and the “do’s” vs. the “do not’s” of clinical supervision, as well as to highlight the upcoming 2020 ASHA changes to supervision…all from the perspective of a Director of External Clinical Practicums. We close with a challenge to the listeners…not yet a supervisor…join the club and pay it forward!!


By the end of this PodCourse, participants will be able to identify and describe:

  • 2 requirements that Clinical Supervisors need in order to continue acting in that capacity.
  • 2 challenges to supervision and provide solutions.
  • 2 challenges that universities face when securing practicum sites for graduate students.
