International lecture enhances Audiology degree at University Centre South Devon

Given the current circumstances, the transition to a virtual way of working and studying has driven a lot of creative solutions to try to continue as normally as possible. But it’s also opened up the doors for many more possibilities to take education to the next level.

Students studying their foundation degree in Hearing Aid Audiology at University Centre South Devon (UCSD) had a great opportunity to expand their use of technology and participated in an online live lecture delivered from Ohio, USA.

The lecture was delivered by Mohammed Hamid (MD, PhD, EE) who is a Professor of Audiology and Otolaryngology and is also Medical Director of the Cleveland Hearing and Balance Center in Ohio, USA. The lecture enhanced the students’ scheduled delivery for their Anatomy and Physiology module as part of their first year studies for FdSc Hearing Aid Audiology.

Claire Langman, Clinical Education Manager at UCSD, said: “this was an amazing opportunity for our students to learn from a leading expert in the field of Audiology. The support provided to our students enabled them to participate in the live lecture and to pose questions to an expert in their field, which provided them a unique opportunity to enhance their knowledge.”

FdSc Hearing Aid Audiology is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), ensuring you are learning everything you need to become a professional practitioner in this sector.
