Welcome to the St Joseph's Swallowing Clinic Outpatient Rotation
The St Joseph's Swallowing Clinic at Mcmaster University offers an elective outpatient rotation
as an educational initiative since June 2009.
- GI residents
- General Internal medicine residents
Length of Time: 4 weeks, twice a week.
The main goal of this rotation is to get the residents familiarized and exposured with a variety of clinical
scenarios related to swallowing disorders. At the end of the rotation the residents have to be able to go through a
broad expectrum of differential diagnosis in order to establish a future plan for follow-up and treatment.
The multidisciplinary Swallowing Clinic works in principle as a fast tract assessment clinic optimizing resources.
It is conducted jointly by an Internist/Gastroenterologist and a Speech-Language Pathologist.
The first clinical assessment is conducted in the Outpatient Clinic within the Department of Speech-Language
Pathology and the VSS is performed with a Medical Radiation Technologist in the Department of Diagnostic Imaging.
