Clinical Education Program in Audiology (Au.D.)
The Doctor of Audiology clinical education program at The University of Memphis is designed to prepare students
with a broad array of clinical experiences across the scope of practice in Audiology.
The clinical experiences along with the course curriculum are designed to reflect
the latest advances in evaluation and treatment of hearing disorders. Students’ clinical
skills are built upon a strong theoretical and scientific foundation that exposes
them to research and practice throughout the program.
Students work closely with our academic and clinical faculty who are recognized experts
in the diagnosis and management of hearing loss, amplification, speech perception,
electrophysiology, and cochlear physiology. Students receive extensive practicum experiences
with clients of all ages and all types of hearing disorders in the Memphis Speech
and Hearing Center as well as in many clinical sites throughout the surrounding metropolitan
area. During the fourth year of the program, students participate in an externship
where they obtain full-time clinical experience.
The clinical program has 3 full time clinical faculty in addition to the Director
of Audiology Services. These faculty are very active professionally at the local and
state level. In addition to their specialty areas, these faculty members are committed
to studying the clinical education process. All students have the opportunity to work
with and learn from each master clinician.
