The Munroe-Meyer Institute (MMI) for Genetics and Rehabilitation at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) is currently accepting applications for the Director of the Department of Speech-Language Pathology (SLP). MMI’s mission is to be world leaders in transforming the lives of all individuals with disabilities and complex health care needs. MMI recently moved into the world’s most advanced, 220,000 sq ft facility for diagnostics and care of individuals with IDD (https://www.unmc.edu/mmi/about/annual-rpt//2020.pdf). MMI is a federally designated University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) and Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) program.

The Director of SLP leads the RiteCare Clinics across the state, supports integrative and collaborative work with MMI Pediatric Feeding Disorders and the Integrated Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders (iCASD), and has the potential to be involved in clinical expansion of autism services for toddlers across the state.
