Overview

The Master of Audiology at Flinders University is a professionally oriented course for graduates interested in acquiring knowledge and skills in the evaluation and management of auditory disorders (hearing loss and tinnitus) and their consequences.

This course prepares you to begin clinical practice as an audiologist in a range of urban, rural and remote settings, to be a well-informed health professional, and to acquire critical skills in appraising scientific and clinical information, which will assist your further professional development.

Program

The Master of Audiology at Flinders University consists of audiology topics, clinical audiology topics, professional studies topics, and research topics. Audiology topics, which address the scientific foundations of audiology and how they interface with clinical practice in diagnosing and managing auditory disorders, are studied alongside clinical audiology and professional studies, which provide the skills necessary to produce a competent beginning practitioner. Topics that address current issues of specific and general relevance to audiologists as health professionals are also introduced throughout the degree.

Clinical practice

As an audiology student in the clinic, you will gain additional clinical placement hours and will be directly supervised by the audiology clinical educator.

The Flinders Master of Audiology offers innovative learning experiences including problem-based learning tutorials, clinical skills classes and clinical placements in Adelaide or interstate, and in rural and remote areas of South Australia and the Northern Territory.
