Intro to UF Clinical Education – A Brief Overview

UF Health Affiliated Sites

Gainesville and North Central Florida Community Sites

Clinical Externships

Many of our students complete their clinical externships at sites beyond the Gainesville area. In recent years our students have ventured to schools, hospitals, and clinics in places such as Atlanta, Jacksonville, Orlando, Miami, Tampa, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and San Diego, to name a few!

In each of these settings, our students are mentored by licensed and certified speech-language pathologists (including our professors) who are highly experienced in the areas of assessment, prevention, and treatment. We strive to help our students develop a comprehensive, well-balanced foundation for successful clinical careers in speech-language pathology – ones that encompasses communication differences, developmental and acquired communication disorders, and swallowing disorders in both pediatric and adult cases.
