The speech pathologists degree is a four-year degree that will allow students to practice their speech pathologies.
The speech pathology field is a booming one, with some $20 billion in annual revenue.
There are now more than 100,000 speech pathological specialists around the world.
The university’s speech pathophysicists program has a bachelor’s degree in speech pathology and a PhD in speech pathobiology, but it does not offer a PhD. There is no research funding from the Australian Research Council.
But the degree is worth it.
Dr James Brown, the university’s associate professor of speech pathology, said students had to prepare for a lifetime of working with the language system.
“The pathologist is going to work with the patient in the clinic, in the hospital, with a lot of people in the field,” Dr Brown said.
Dr Brown said the speech pathopath was a “very, very specialised field”.””
The course is a very rigorous training for people that have a real interest in speech and pathology and the language process.”
Dr Brown said the speech pathopath was a “very, very specialised field”.
“They will be able to work in a small room with patients, they will be working with a team of people who have to understand all the nuances of a person’s speech and their speech pathology,” he said.
He said the course offered students “a real exposure to the human side of speech”.
“I think that’s what makes it so valuable,” he added.
The first phase of the speech pathology program involves a one-week clinical residency and four weeks of clinical teaching, which covers all aspects of speech pathologic practice.
The next phase, called the post-graduate course, will allow the students to “build upon their knowledge of pathology in a broad sense” and “build on their experience of working in the speech field”.
The program’s first class will be offered in 2019.
Dr Brown is also looking for people with the right language skills and the right interest in the subject.
“A lot of the young people are interested in language, and language in a particular context, and I think it’s a good opportunity for them to build on their language skills, their knowledge and their interest in language,” he explained.
Dr Smith is also excited about the program.
“I’m very excited because the course is such a unique and cutting-edge, high-impact pathway for speech pathology to be a valuable part of the future of speech,” she said.
