School of Audiology - About Us
The primary goal of the School of Audiology is to graduate outstanding audiologists, ready to assume autonomous professional responsibilities in a variety of practice settings, including private practices, medical centers and clinics, and other diverse settings.
To achieve this goal, the faculty members strive to offer a curriculum that prepares students across the audiology scope of practice through a combination of rigorous, didactic courses and critical clinical experiences that work together to integrate comprehensive knowledge and skills. The curriculum is further enhanced with a rich framework of collegial interprofessional collaboration, evidence driven practice, highly professional and ethical behavior, and a team-based learning environment that supports critical thinking and professional communication.
As a School, we are committed to fostering among our students a spirit of life-long professional learning, a commitment to service, and a desire to contribute to the advancement of the profession. Further, as part of our mission, we are also committed to developing healthcare programs that serve underserved communities and improve the lives of those in our region.
