Speech Pathology Graduate Student Lecture Series

During the COVID-19 pandemic our ability to have graduate students has been limited. To continue our commitment to training the next generation of speech pathologists we are offering a weekly lecture series to graduate students.

“Use it on Monday” Lecture Series

This recurring lecture series is held for three hours on Saturday mornings at Duke. Participants can earn 0.3 IACET CEUs per session. Four lectures are held per year.

Duke Speech Pathology and Audiology staff and outside speakers present topics to Duke staff and members of the community. The information is functional and practical, with opportunities for hands-on practice, discussion, and small group interaction. The goal of the series is to share advanced practices, provide inexpensive CEUs, and network with professionals in the community.

Vestibular Grand Rounds

Duke Vestibular Disorders Clinic hosts monthly Vestibular Grand Rounds. This is a multi-disciplinary meeting that includes physicians, residents, fellows, and allied healthcare providers from multiple departments including Audiology, ENT, Physical Therapy and Neurology. The purpose of this meeting is to share challenging cases and get multidisciplinary input from diagnosis to treatment plan, collaborate on research ideas, and stay up to date on literature and current best practice in the field. The overarching goal of this continuing education series is to create a learning environment that promotes excellent care for patients with dizziness and balance disorders.
