 To analyze the current state and issues of clinical education for speech-language-hearing therapists, a questionnaire of clinical practicum was sent to 59 colleges. Results showed the following short-comings:①variation, both among institutions and supervisors, in the achievement levels of clinical performances, in the content and methods of clinical practicum, and in methods of evaluation;②a high degree of dependence on local institutions resulting in a lack of consistency between college education and clinical practicum in local institutions;③an absence of programs to develop the competence of supervisors and programs to share guidelines for supervision. To solve these problems, it is important to develop and share a model core curriculum for speech-language-hearing therapist education and clinical supervision, and to establish training systems for clinical supervisors.
