OzTREKK Funny Friday
So one night he stood behind her while she was sitting in her lounge chair.
He spoke softly to her: “Honey, can you hear me?”
There was no response.
He moved a little closer and said again, “Honey, can you hear me?”
Still, there was no response.
Finally he moved right behind her, leaned over the back of her chair and said, “Honey, can you hear me?”
She replied, “For the third time, yes!”
Audiology Programs at Australian UniversitiesAudiology is a growing discipline in the health sciences that deals with the study, diagnosis and rehabilitation of the auditory system of the human body. Audiology, as a clinical profession, uses applied science to develop and perform precision tests that locate the specific range and frequency of hearing loss, information necessary for implementing an effective recovery strategy. Additionally, audiology identifies and treats dysfunctions of the vestibular system, which can affect one’s balance and spatial orientation.
There are very few Canadian universities that offer a Master of Audiology, and only three audiology schools are taught solely as an English-language program. Consequently, competitive admissions arising from so few spots have made Australian Audiology Schools an attractive option for Canadian students who wish to learn the requisite clinical skills to practice audiology.
The following Australian universities offer audiology programs:
- Macquarie University Audiology School
- University of Melbourne Audiology School
- University of Queensland Audiology School
