Visiting Clinician Application
Visiting Clinician Application for Temporary Registration
In the province of New Brunswick, an individual must hold a certificate of registration with NBASLPA to perform any component of the practice of audiology or speech-language pathology. It is an offence under the Act Incorporating The New Brunswick Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (The Act) and An Act Respecting Health Professionals to practice or identify oneself as an audiologist or speech-language pathologist in New Brunswick without being registered with NBASLPA.
Audiologists or speech-language pathologists who come to New Brunswick from another jurisdiction for the purpose of conducting any activity that falls within the definition of “audiology” or “speech-language pathology” in The Act must apply for temporary registration as a visiting clinician with NBASLPA.
Applicants who hold full registration status in another regulated jurisdiction may be granted temporary registration for a period not to exceed three months duration. One renewal of this time period may be granted in some circumstances. The temporary registration applies only to the activities described in the application and does not constitute a general licence to practice audiology or speech-language pathology in New Brunswick.
A visiting Clinician Application for Temporary Registration must be completed and submitted to NBASLPA for approval by the Registrar. The applicable application fee must accompany the application. The applicant must also arrange for proof of registration in good standing in another regulated jurisdiction to be sent directly to NBASLPA.
All required documentation must be received by NBASLPA at least 30 days before the commencement date of the planned clinical activity to assure approval. Applications received less than 30 days prior to the activity may not be approved or may be subject to a $100 late fee.
