OzTREKK Funny Friday
Morris, an 82-year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical. A few days later the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm.
The doctor stopped Morris and said, “You’re really doing great, aren’t you?”
Morris replied with a huge smile, “Just doing what you said, Doc: ‘Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.’”
The doctor looked worried. “I didn’t say that. I said, ‘You’ve got a heart murmur. Be careful.’”
Audiology Programs at Australian Universities
Audiology 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
