There are now two tracks for obtaining specialty recognition in swallowing and swallowing disorders (BRS-S). Many of our excellent colleagues were unable to qualify for application for BRS-S because of the clinical requirements or because they were in supervisory, educational, or research positions. That is now changed and two tracks are open for dysphagia specialists to obtain specialty recognition.
The first track is Clinical, which now can include supervision of students or staff and the second track is Research/Teaching. Both tracks require CCC with at least 3 years of dysphagia experience and 7.5 CEUs within the 3 years prior to applying. Clinicians applying for the Clinical track will need a minimum of 350 clocks hours a year in dysph-agia evaluation or treatment and clinical supervisors can apply 100 hours supervising students or staff toward this requirement.
