Otoprotective agents are explored. (2 credits) AUD 7075—Counseling in Audiology This course provides an exploration of the theoretical basis of counseling methodology and evidence-based approaches to patient- and family-centered care in audiology. Principles and characteristics of effective communication are detailed and applied to context-specific situations through simulated activities. (3 credits) AUD 7079—Ethics, Coding, and Reimbursement for Audiology This course provides an introduction to theories of bioethics and applications to audiology and clinical practice. It details evaluation, treatment, and diagnosis codes relevant to audiology practice. Third-party reimbursement policies, procedures, and guidelines are discussed. (2 credits) AUD 7080—Practice Management for Audiology This course provides the basic principles involved in the development, operation, and management of audiology practice within the framework of different models of health care delivery. (3 credits) AUD 7081—Business Management and Leadership United Kingdom Program Only: In this course, students examine basic principles involved in the development and management of audiology practice within the framework of different models of health care delivery. Legal and ethical issues in practice management will be discussed. (3 credits) AUD 7100—Advanced Seminar in Amplification This course provides advanced information on the theoretical and practical concepts of fitting, verification, and analyses of amplification systems. Counseling techniques are discussed. (2 credits) AUD 7101—Advanced Seminar in Amplification United Kingdom Program Only: This course is designed to provide advanced information on the theoretical and practical concepts of fitting, verification, and analyses of amplification systems. (3 credits) AUD 7120—Advanced Auditory Electrophysiology This course provides a detailed study of evoked potentials, including early through late auditory responses, intraoperative neural monitoring, and somatosensory potentials with an emphasis on the neurophysiological bases of these potentials. It also provides clinical and research applications of various test techniques. Students will have practical, hands-on experience in using evoked potentials in evaluating the human efferent auditory system (brainstem to cochlea) and afferent auditory system (cochlea to cortex). (3 credits) AUD 7121—Advanced Auditory Electrophysiology United Kingdom Program Only: Students will study auditory neurophysiologic evaluation procedures, including evoked responses for all latencies and otoacoustic emissions. Interpretation of test results will be discussed in relation to underlying anatomy and physiology. (3 credits) AUD 7130—Pediatric Audiology This course provides a detailed study of typical and atypical prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal auditory development in children. Pediatric assessment and intervention protocols are explored with the typical, developmentally delayed, and difficult-to-test populations. (3 credits) AUD 7135—Pediatric Audiologic (Re)Habilitation This course provides details related to the provision of audiologic (re)habilitation services to children with hearing loss. Intervention for children with hearing loss in educational and other habilitative settings is explored in depth. (2 credits) AUD 7160—Advanced Vestibular Evaluation and Treatment This course provides a detailed study of vestibular test procedures, results, analysis, and treatment. Advanced testing including posturography and rotary chair are presented. Vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT), canalith repositioning techniques, and fall-risk assessments are discussed and evaluated. (3 credits) AUD 7161—Genetics of Hearing Impairment United Kingdom Program Only: Students will study the basic concepts of genetics and its relation to hearing loss. They will also learn about the hereditary syndromes and birth defects associated with hearing impairments. Additionally, they will gain knowledge about audiologic counseling and interpretation of genetic data. (3 credits) AUD 7165—Vestibular Specialty Seminar (elective) Students will participate in an advanced study of vestibular evaluation and treatment. In-depth analysis of vestibular evaluation and treatment techniques will be examined, with focus on special patient populations. An interprofessional approach to management of dizzy/fall-risk patients will be presented. Vestibular rehabilitation and balance therapy programming and therapy techniques will be discussed and evaluated. (3 credits)
