Speech Language Pathology
Medical speech language pathologists (SLPs) work in healthcare to diagnose and treat a wide range of speech, language, cognitive, voice and swallowing disorders.
They work with patients affected by a variety of neurological events, such as brain damage, dementia, stroke, seizure or cancer. They also work with patients who suffer from chronic diseases or who have experienced a trauma.
