Considerable concern is being expressed over the lack of students enrolled in and graduating from doctoral programs in communication sciences and disorders. The most recent national survey by the Council of Graduate Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (1995) determined that a total of 115 doctoral degrees were awarded during the 1993–94 academic year by the 130 reporting doctoral programs (audiology, speech-language pathology, speech and hearing science). Although this number represented an increase of five over the previous survey year (1991–1992), it was still the second lowest total in the 13-year history of the survey. These data appear to suggest that the reporting programs are graduating fewer than two doctoral students each year.
