Academic camp enables students to explore field of speech-language pathology
Posted 06/29/2017 03:27PM

Misericordia University recently hosted rising high school juniors and seniors on campus for a series of six academic Career Exploration Camps in order to provide them an opportunity to experience and learn more about exciting professions, as well as residential life on a college campus.

The Career Exploration Camps at Misericordia University are a popular destination for students who want to explore academic camps in biology, chemistry-biochemistry sciences, communications and media, literature, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology. Space is limited in each camp and registration is necessary.

The Speech-Language Pathology Career Exploration Camp allows students to become familiar with the many career options in the growing field of speech-language pathology. During the three-day residential camp, participants tour the department's state-of-the-art academic facilities at John J. Passan Hall, learn about the career field from guest lecturers, interact with pediatric clients, and observe live therapy sessions in the Speech-Language and Hearing Center.

Speech-language pathologists are employed in schools, hospitals, nursing care facilities, home health care settings, outpatient care centers, day care centers for children, and institutions of higher education.
