About the Melbourne Audiology Clinic
The University of Melbourne Department of Audiology and Speech Pathology has developed to be a leading international player in hearing research, largely due to its role in the development and improvement of cochlear implants and their application.
The Department of Audiology and Speech Pathology at the University of Melbourne runs the only training course for the audiology profession in Victoria. The Master of Clinical Audiology has grown by a factor of three over the last 12 years in terms of students and staff, largely due to the growth and increasing demand for audiological services in the community. This demand is likely to increase in the medium term and the need to accommodate additional audiology students in years to come has led to the relocation of the teaching component of the department to new facilities in Swanston Street in Melbourne.
The University of Melbourne Audiology Clinic is dedicated to providing a patient-centred, evidence-based, clinical best practice service for all, specializing in communication, hearing and balance (vestibular) needs. It is a teaching clinic and Master of Clinical Audiology students are involved in most clinics under supervision from fully qualified and experienced audiologists at all times.
The clinic offers a complete range of hearing assessment and aural rehabilitation for children and adults. Access to specialist medical consultation is available when required. The University of Melbourne Audiology Clinic provides the following services:
- Hearing Assessments
- Auditory Processing and Management
- Speech Pathology
- Tinnitus Management
- Hearing Aids and Accessories
- Custom Ear Plugs
Melbourne Audiology School’s audiology program focuses on developing professional skills through a large program component of comprehensive clinical training. Clinical skills are supplemented by coursework and lectures that introduce students to graduate-level research methods, while maintaining a strong level of scientific acumen expected of students in the health sciences at the university.
