The aim of the module is to provide an overview of the core scientific and clinical aspects of auditory implantation. This module is primarily for those taking one of our audiology programmes or taking the module as 'stand-alone' as part of career development. It might also be of interest to a student on a non-audiology degree interested in auditory implants.
The module includes lectures on cochlear implants, bone conduction hearing instruments (bone anchored hearing aids and middle ear implants) and auditory brainstem implants. There are sessions where opportunity is provided to observe recorded clinical procedures and the perspectives of auditory implant users/patients.
