The College of Health and Public Service (HPS) at the University of North Texas, distinguished as one of the few Tier One research universities designated as a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI), prepares graduates to address diverse and complex social issues such as aging, disability, disaster management and recovery, criminal justice, health disparities, and public safety, and find solutions to challenges in public administration, public health, and urban design. We have seven academic departments with undergraduate and graduate programs, the Center for Public Management, the UNT Speech and Hearing Center, UNT WISE and a number of professional development and clinical training programs to facilitate careers to address a global society.
HPS students are trained to lead nonprofits, become educators, researchers and professionals who strengthen the diverse communities we serve, with thoughtful, inclusive, and equitable practices as audiologists, behavior analysts, city managers, emergency managers, health care administrators, public safety administrators, public health specialists, rehabilitation counselors, speech language pathologists, social workers, urban planners, and more.
Located within HPS, the Department of Audiology & Speech-Language Pathology (ASLP) provides the finest graduate professional education in both speech-language pathology and audiology while maintaining an excellent undergraduate degree. The program stresses excellence in teaching, research, and service by its faculty and students. As a component of the educational program, the department operates the UNT Speech and Hearing Center, which offers professional services to members of our campus community and the general public for the purpose of providing clinical training for students. The Center offers state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment of speech, language, and hearing disorders.
ASLP is seeking a Speech Pathologist Clinical Supervisor to join the HPS family.
This position is responsible for the supervision of clinical assessment and treatment of Speech-Language Pathology graduate student clinicians, in addition to the provision of direct assessment and treatment of clinical clients (during semester breaks and/or other times during the work week, as assigned). Direct services will be relayed via telepractice or in-person in the UNT Speech and Hearing Center, based on each client’s situation. It is expected that direct services will reflect state-of-art, evidence-based clinical practices.
Supervision of graduate student clinicians is performed autonomously, under the Clinical Director’s general direction regarding established policies and procedures of the UNT clinic and programmatic expectations of student clinicians. The supervisor determines specific clinical objectives and treatment plans for each client and guides student clinicians towards achieving evidence-based standards of clinical practice. The supervisor is responsible for guiding and mentoring clinical students in their development of assessment and treatment abilities, clinical paperwork and reporting, and implementation of state-of-art, evidence-based assessment and treatment practices. The supervisor independently plans and carries out clinical assignments, resolves conflicts, coordinates student activities and clinical expectations, and stays informed about clinical policy. The supervisor maintains close contact with, and keeps clinic director informed of programmatic progress, potential clinical issues, student issues, and other issues of relevance for the UNT Speech and Hearing Center.
