The ACC: a New Tool to Assess and Develop Clinical Competence in Students

Are you interested in educating your future colleagues? The Canadian Assessment of Clinical Competence (ACC-SLP/AUD) is a new bilingual clinical education tool that university programs will implement in 2024. A unique feature of the ACC is the inclusion of milestones, a practical and objective roadmap that supports clinical educators to assess and scaffold student learning and competence development. Milestones can also be used in the mentorship of new colleagues. Explore the tool in English or French using student scenarios and learn the preliminary results of a research study that surveyed audiology and speech-language pathology clinical educators who piloted the ACC.
