306 Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences—Department of Audiology Audiology Course Descriptions AUD 5010—Neuroscience for Audiology This course provides an introduction to the gross structure of the brain and spinal cord and the functional relationship of their parts, with emphasis on the auditory and vestibular peripheral and central nervous systems. Topics discussed include function of nerve cells, sensory systems, movement control, memory, cognition, and diseases of the brain. (2 credits) AUD 5070—Research Methods I This course provides an introduction to clinical research in audiology and the principles of evidence-based practice. Foundational knowledge and skills in accessing and evaluating medical and scientific literature to support clinical decisionmaking, applying the information to clinical populations, and integrating evidence in the provision of audiological services are emphasized. (3 credits) AUD 5301—Diagnostics I: Audiologic Diagnostic Procedures Across the Life Span This course provides an exploration of the components of the audiologic evaluation, including evaluation of the outer ear, middle ear, inner ear, and the central auditory nervous system. Assessment procedures across the life span are examined. (3 credits) AUD 5301L—Diagnostics I Lab This laboratory course provides students with practical application supplementing AUD 5301. (1 credit) AUD 5302—Acoustics and Instrumentation This course provides detailed study of the physics of sound and instrumentation used in the audiological sciences. (3 credits) AUD 5305—Psychoacoustics This course provides a study of psychoacoustic theory and methods. Auditory perception in normal hearing and hearingimpaired subjects will be addressed. (1 credit) AUD 5304—Anatomy and Physiology of the Auditory and Vestibular Mechanisms This course will provide detailed study of the anatomy and physiology of the outer ear, middle ear, inner ear, and central auditory pathways. The vestibular peripheral system and the vestibular CNS pathways are described. (3 credits) AUD 5306—Speech Perception This course provides a study of human speech perception, including acoustic phonetics, theoretical models of speech perception, and assessment methods. (1 credit) AUD 5402—Introduction to Auditory Electrophysiology This course provides an introduction to electrophysiological examination of the auditory system. The primary measure of focus is the auditory brainstem response and its underlying anatomical and physiological generators, applications, collection, interpretation, and relevance to clinical decisionmaking. (3 credits) AUD 5403L—Introduction to Auditory Electrophysiology Lab This laboratory course supplements AUD 5402, providing students with practical assignments. (1 credit) AUD 5404—Introduction to Vestibular Evaluation This course provides an introduction to the basic procedures and interpretation for vestibular assessment, including videonystagmography (VNG), vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP), video head impulse test (vHIT), and bedside evaluation. (3 credits) AUD 5404L—Introduction to Vestibular Evaluation Lab This laboratory course supplements AUD 5404, providing students with practical assignments. (1 credit) AUD 5405—Overview of Amplification I This course provides an introduction to amplification. The content of this course includes historical perspectives on amplification; functions and features of amplification systems and their components; methods of fitting; verification; and analyses of these systems. It also includes basic concepts in counseling. (3 credits) AUD 5405L—Amplification Lab I This laboratory course provides students with practical application supplementing AUD 5405. (1 credit) AUD 5410—Navigating the Audiology Professional Landscape This course provides an introduction to professional issues encountered in audiology practice, as well as aspects of professional development. (1 credit) AUD 6310—Adult Audiologic Rehabilitation This course provides a detailed study of audiological intervention and remediation strategies for individuals over 18 years old with peripheral and central hearing loss. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of a multiprofessional approach. (2 credits)
