The Vanderbilt Voice Center at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Bill Wilkerson Center for Otolaryngology and Communication Sciences in Nashville, TN is pleased to announce an opening for a full-time Voice Speech-Language Pathologist to join our team.
The Vanderbilt Voice Center is seeking a licensed voice speech-pathologist with at least three years of experience working with voice disorders. The ideal candidate would be an individual who possesses strong interpersonal skills as well as an interest in participating in ongoing clinical research related to diagnostic and rehabilitative voice care.
At its inception, The Vanderbilt Voice Center was the brainchild of Dr. Robert Ossoff, and was the first of its kind in an academic setting. Though many have opened similar facilities based on this model both in and out of academia, our program remains the largest of its kind in the world and boasts both a national and international referral base. We have assisted a former US President, internationally acclaimed singers of country, pop, bluegrass and other genres, national news broadcasters, internationally renowned opera singers, stars of Broadway musicals and stage plays, national radio and television personalities, ministers, teachers, attorneys, and many others. Despite having had the privilege to care for these publicly recognized professionals, our core mission is to support every individual, as voice resides at the center of quality of life, livelihood, and is the instrument we use to communicate each day with family and friends.
Our team has grown into a nationally known multidisciplinary outpatient care center staffed by four laryngologists, two laryngology fellows, and six full time voice speech-language pathologists. This individual will be a fully integrated member of our Voice Center team, our Head and Neck team and our Craniofacial team and may expect daily collaboration with each of them, as we are embedded within the larger Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center on the main hospital campus.
Experience and fluency in the following areas are ideal:
- Voice evaluation and intervention (singing and speaking voice)
- Rigid and flexible endoscopy in adult and pediatric populations
- Pre- and post-operative laryngectomy care and management
- Acoustic and aerodynamic voice analysis
- Comprehensive voice rehabilitation techniques
- Pediatric voice evaluation and treatment
- Gender affirming voice care
We remain committed as a team to the education of emerging clinicians through clinical experience. Therefore, individuals seeking a clinical fellowship in voice speech-pathology are also encouraged to apply.
Qualified candidates may submit a profile inclusive of a current curriculum vitae, a personal statement illustrating their background and interest in voice, a reference list, and letters of recommendation to Vanderbilt's HR.
All applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis until the right candidate has been identified.
