This is a professionally oriented course which seeks to attract graduates interested in acquiring knowledge and skills in the evaluation and management of auditory disorders - hearing loss and tinnitus - and their consequences. It offers a variety of innovative learning experiences, including extensive problem-based learning, laboratory classes and clinical placements.

The course aims to prepare the graduate for beginning 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 their further professional development.

Students will be able to undertake clinical placements in Adelaide or interstate, including in rural and remote areas of South Australia or the Northern Territory.

Immunisation and Communicable Diseases: Requirements for Clinical Placements

This course includes clinical placements which aim to provide students with the practical experience required for the workplace. Students on placement have both an increased risk of most vaccine preventable diseases as well as the potential to transmit infections to susceptible patients. Students who are required to complete clinical placements as part of their course must therefore be immunised in accordance with the relevant State or Territory immunisation  standards (e.g. Health Immunisation for Health Care Workers in South Australia 2014 Policy Guideline)  and any additional private provider requirements as needed.
