About this Event
Join us for an info session about the Spring 2024 Short-Term Abroad Program (STAP) on Speech Language Pathology practice in Mexico (SPHR 6291) with Professor Erin Anne Cardman and Professor Cynthia Core.
This course, led by Professor Erin Anne Cardman and Professor Cynthia Core., will introduce students to the skills necessary for practice as a culturally competent clinician, while participating in international collaborations in speech-language pathology. In collaboration with existing partners at the Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro, students will have the opportunity to meet with local professionals; visit numerous service delivery sites, observe, and collaborate with health and education service providers and experience and evaluate the scope of practice in Speech Language Pathology in Mexico. Students will also participate in one of two language courses (beginner-intermediate or advanced) to learn Spanish terminology specific to SLP. In addition to the professional site visits and collaborations, students will participate in several rich cultural events and encounters. Upon return to the US, students will complete a group summative project detailing their learning experience and addressing the implications for multicultural service delivery in SLP both at home and abroad. This unique opportunity for students allows them and participating faculty to establish lasting personal and professional relationships with partners in Mexico.
In addition to the GW Passport Pre-Decision application, a brief interview with Professor Cardman is required. Please email Professor Cardman at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your interview. Your application will not be considered complete until the interview has been confirmed by Prof. Cardman. The deadline to interview is Oct. 22, 2023.
