  1. Good evening! I posted in this forum a few months ago with a question re: application requirements and everybody was very helpful. I am an SLP practicing in Michigan. When I look at the "Patient Care Experience" information for the programs I am looking at it mentions CNA, Respiratory Therapist, PT/OT assistants, and even RPT and OTRs. However, they never list speech therapy. Is speech therapy considered less desirable for PCE? I specialize in dysphagia management so I do a lot of med reviews, checking labs, risk analysis, and assessment of physiological function pertaining to the swallow as all of these things can have a bearing on swallowing. I have to get very involved with medical care and decision making when advancing a diet as the patient could have very bad immediate adverse outcomes if not properly managed. I have noticed over the years that this approach and these skills seems to be rare among SLPs and many (especially in SNF) seem to be a bit dim on the medical side. Is there a bad view of SLPs because of this? Are SLPs viewed as being undesirable for PA programs? I very much want to advance my career in this direction but I am worried this will hold me back.
  2. Any PA's out there being charged supervisory fees by their SP? I've never heard of this!!
