PATHOLOGY OF HEARING LOSS
Credit points: 15
Audiologists need a good working knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the structures involved in hearing as well as an understanding of the diseases or disorders of the auditory system. Through lectures, this subject will provide you with knowledge about the structure and function of the peripheral/central auditory system and the vestibular system. It will further provide you with an understanding of common auditory pathologies resulting from disease or injury, and the impact of those pathologies on a patient's hearing. Your learning in the subject will be assessed through a written assignment and exam.
