Subject outline

This subject provides you with an opportunity to further advance your skills in audiological assessment and rehabilitation. Through community clinical placements, you will gain experience in complex case management in both adult and paediatric populations. Though you will be working under the supervision of qualified audiologists, you will begin to assume responsibility for all aspects of audiological healthcare, thereby enhancing your independence and job readiness. Your learning in this subject will be assessed through clinical examinations, assessment of clinical performance during placements and different assignments. . Professional accreditation requires a minimum level of clinical exposure. Your attendance at professional placements will contribute to meeting this requirement for professional recognition as an audiologist.
