I am a Canadian Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP), interested in practicing in Switzerland. I am fluent in English French and Spanish and have some proficiency in German. I was just wondering if anyone might be able to provide me with some insight as to how a Canadian-trained SLP like myself, would find work in Switzerland.
I work primarily with school-aged children, in the areas of articulation disorders, fluency disorders, voice disorders and motor-speech disorders. Additionally, I work with the adult population, both by providing coverage for colleagues at a local hospital, and by making home visits to adult patients with swallowing and communication difficulties in the community.I would be comfortable working in a school setting, a private practice, or some combination of both.
Any advice or information you might be able to provide me regarding requirements for practice, job availability, or other resources would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
