Observation Hours

Are you interested in learning more about how to obtain observation hours? A great way to learn more about speech-language pathology and audiology is to complete observation hours with a licensed professional. Observation hours completed at the undergraduate level may also count towards clinical competencies for students planning to pursue graduate education in speech-language pathology.

If you are an undergraduate and are interested in completing observation hours, please email slhs@umn.edu. Students must identify a specific professional and/or site to observe, complete HIPAA training, and sign an observation agreement in order to be eligible.

Students who do not honor their observation commitments will not be further assisted with additional observations.
