Moore '14 to Enter Speech-Language Pathology Program at MGH

Jamie Moore '14

Jamie Moore '14 has recently been accepted to several graduate programs, and she has chosen to continue her education at Massachusetts General Hospital's Internal Health Program for the fall of 2014 in a Master's program for Speech-Language Pathology.  Moore's internship in the Department of Otolaryngology and Communication Enhancement at Boston Children's Hospital at Waltham epitomizes her future career goals to one day become a speech pathologist, following the obtainment of her Master's. By volunteering at Children's Hospital, and creating networking connections, the Developmental Psychology major was able to meet an Emmanuel alum who aided her in acquiring her internship.

Moore stated that, "My favorite part is truly the experience I have been exposed to. The children that come to this speech clinic come for a reason and it is because the employees here are experts in their field and deal with complicated cases every day. Most of the children I get to see not only have a speech or language disorder, but another or many other medical disorders accompanying it. I have learned so much from being here over the months.

"My biggest takeaway from being at Children's really is that it has opened up my eyes to see what I will be doing in just two short years after graduating from graduate school. I have seen truly so much here that I realize my opportunities being a speech-language pathologist are endless."

Internships are an amazing way for students to realize their potential career options, as Moore has exemplified through her experience as an intern at Boston Children's Hospital at Waltham.
