The Grabscheid Voice and Swallowing Center, in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, within the Mount Sinai Health System will provide the opportunity for a highly qualified graduate of an accredited Speech-Language Pathology program to complete a 12 month, full-time, paid clinical fellowship dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of patients with voice, upper airway, and swallowing disorders.
We are seeking a dynamic Clinical Fellow looking to develop their career in medical Speech-Language Pathology with a focus on the outpatient evaluation, diagnosis and management of patients with disorders of voice and swallowing. The successful candidate will work with a team of Speech-Language Pathologists and physicians in an interdisciplinary clinic setting evaluating patients, developing plan of care, and performing therapy.
The candidate will develop skills in the clinical evaluation and management of patients with dysphonia and dysphagia, gain experience in performing and interpreting laryngeal stroboscopy, FEES studies, modified barium swallow studies, and acoustic and aerodynamic evaluation of voice. The candidate will also be involved in clinical research. He or she will attend regularly scheduled departmental and education meetings, complete daily documentation and billing through the EMR (electronic medical record) system and be prepared and equipped to work in a busy, fast-paced clinic. The mentor will be an on-site, full-time, clinically certified Speech-Language Pathologist.
The clinic population is primarily adults. There will be exposure to patients with a full-range of disorders and etiologies, including difficulties related to performance voice requirements, transgender voice, neurogenic voice and swallowing disease, and voice and swallowing issues related to head and neck cancer.
Special consideration will be given to candidates who have a demonstrated interest, and prior experience, in the evaluation and treatment of voice and swallowing disorders through graduate student work.
The candidate must present a strong academic background and solid recommendations from their graduate training program and supervisors during their clinical practicum. Experience in working with the singing voice and working with EMR is an advantage, but not required.
