After graduating from Flinders, Jackson began his audiology career at Tan Tock Seng Hospital back in Singapore in 2018 and was promoted to Senior Audiologist by the end of 2019. In addition, he voluntarily provides hearing services with SoundHub and Partners to support hard-of-hearing people, as well as speak at public events to educate and raise awareness about hearing impairment.
Jackson’s experiences through Flinders encouraged him to “empower and inspire others to take control of their own hearing loss and bring back the sounds of life”.
“Doing placement with different clinics in Adelaide and Cairns helped expose me to the different disciplines that audiology itself offers – adult hearing and implants, paediatrics and infant hearing, vestibular (balance) assessment, electrophysiological tests and more,” he says.
“Not only am I able to put myself in the shoes of the patient, I am able to guide the patient to see challenges and benefits from a clinicians’ perspective.”
Jackson is still practising as a Senior Audiologist at Tan Tock Seng Hospital and says he hopes to one day “establish a chain of clinics in Singapore dealing with audiological, vestibular, and speech with emphasis on patient centric care”.
This will further dedicate his work to the wonders of sound for those who struggle to hear.
