We believe it is time to officially recognize the outstanding dysphagia clinicians who bring their patients a more remarkable and faster recovery through specialized treatments.
Who is DU?
DU is a non-profit organization for the specific purpose of issuing credentials in the field of dysphagia in accordance with the Institute for Credentialing Excellence/National Commission for Certifying Agencies' (ICE/NCCA) standards.
We are a credentialing organization - not a continuing education company. We do not train in any treatment techniques, nor are we a membership organization.
DU issues "NDC" (Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation for Dysphagia Certified), just as ASHA issues "CCC" and NBCOT issues "OTR".
DU is a virtual university that administers peer-reviewed, proctored examinations. We are made up of a variety of commissions which develop and oversee the credentialing processes.
