Working in the UQ Speech Pathology Simulation Clinic
Speech pathology focuses on the management of communication and/or swallowing difficulties. Communication problems can occur in the areas of speech, language, voice, fluency (stuttering), hearing or literacy.
Within a “typical workplace environment,” UQ speech pathology students get hands-on practice during their time in the speech pathology simulation clinic. Like real life, students can assess patients with communication and swallowing difficulties in a hospital setting. Simulation clinics offer a number of benefits to the students, including learning to practice new skills, the opportunity for repetition of skill development, and the opportunity to gain a broad range of feedback to practice those skills before they need to use them in a real workplace environment.
