After I received my MA, I worked for 2 years as a staff speech-language pathologist (SLP) at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). During that time, I worked at the main hospital in Boston and at a satellite facility in Chelsea. Working there was an exceptional experience, but sometimes a frustrating one too. It was exceptional because I was fortunate to work with an exemplary group of SLPs who mentored me relative to the variety of patients and disorder types that I assessed and treated. At the main hospital, I saw inpatients and outpatients across the age span (from children in the neonatal intensive care unit to adults at the end stage of life). These individuals presented with “functional” and organic speech and language disorders. At the satellite center in Chelsea, I worked mainly with children from culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) backgrounds who exhibited a range of speech and language disorders. As a clinician, I developed tremendously from my experience at MGH and continue to call upon the skills I acquired during my time there. However, despite the learning experience I had at MGH, in some ways, it was a frustrating experience.
