Charting Your Career Path to Private Practice

Course Number

Presenter:  Jan Ward, M.Ed., CCC-SLP 
Many clinicians generally see private practice as perhaps something more glamorous than it actually is.  Types of private practice service delivery will be discussed such as contracting with facilities, contracting with school districts, working independently or starting a business with other speech-language pathologists.  Legal and financial responsibilities will be explained.  The participants will be encouraged to create personal goals for clinical experience, along with building “their tool belts” with continuing education and specialty skills to become an optimally successful clinician, equipped for the type of practice they envision for themselves.  Other resources available to equip those building a practice will be introduced. 


Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify basic goals needed for a successful job interview when seeking employment in private practice.
  • Define basic terminology used in operating or being employed in a private practice.
  • List personal and career growth ideas to achieve experience and knowledge necessary to pursue a career in private practice.
