    Hi. I have a Ph.D. in speech pathology myself and am an active researcher in the field. The best programs in the US are generally considered to be: Iowa, Wisconsin-Madison, Northwestern, Univ. of Washington, and Arizona. If you want to stay in a particular region I could also recommend programs there for you.

    If you're set on getting certified as well as doing the Ph.D. you might want to consider applying straight to a Ph.D. and getting your CCC while you study for that. In other words you can skip the master's - it is not needed if you get a Ph.D.

    If you want to do a master's Univ. of Washington do an MSc in Medical SLP that might interest you.

    Why are you making the switch if you don't mind my asking?

    thanks for the helpful info in my university hospital the speech and audiology clinic is under the ENT department. the speech clinic has one speech therapist. it is very underdeveloped. there is currently a position for an MD willing to continue in this field and develop it and supervise the clinic . i was interested and it seems like a challenging project. im hoping to continue in this field and if possible in the future develop a local slp program.

    Just curious, why would you want to become a speech pathologist if you are an MD?

    Updates on your end? I’m looking at doing something similar now (SLP to MD-SLP)!
