The role of the Pathways program is to mentor early-career scientists in developing strong foundations for independent clinical research careers. Pathways assists participants with developing a 5-year research career plan, acclimating to a research career, building a publication record, and learning about funding mechanisms appropriate to this career stage. The specific goal of the program is to assist participants in developing a funded clinical research program. Pathways aims to enhance the training, retention, and funding success of clinical scientists in CSD, with the ultimate goal of advancing the evidence base of the discipline. The below videos are recorded presentations from recent past programs.

Pathways is part of ASHA’s Academic & Research Mentoring (ARM) Network. The ARM Network offers programs for those who are considering, launching, and advancing academic-research careers in communication sciences and disorders (CSD).
