In building a culture of excellence, evidence, and continuous improvement based on the program's mission, faculty members have developed program-level learning outcomes: 1) demonstrate comprehension of competencies obtained in academic education; 2) plan, design, and implement appropriate evaluation skills during clinical education; 3) plan, design, and implement appropriate treatment skills during clinical education; 4) demonstrate appropriate interaction skills with other students, faculty, clinical supervisors, clients, families, caregivers, the community, and other professionals; 5) develop and conduct investigations of human communication disorders and integrate research principles into evidence-based clinical practice; 6) complete formative assessment with excellent performance during academic and clinical education; and 7) complete summative assessment by passing the speech-language pathology specialty test of the PRAXIS.
