Audiology Systems Hosts 2nd Annual Student Geared ASIu
Audiology Systems, a full-service, U.S. distributor of GN Otometrics products such as AURICAL®, MADSEN®, ICS® and GENIETM, successfully hosted their 2016 Audiology Systems University. This exclusive two-day course was introduced in 2015 and is designed specifically for second and third year students who are currently enrolled and completing courses towards their doctorate in audiology (AuD). The event took place March 31 to April 1 at the Audiology Systems corporate headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois. The event included 19 students from five universities across the Midwest: Northern Illinois University, Northwestern University, University of Wisconsin Madison/Stevens Point, Central Michigan University and Ball State University.
“We are very excited to host our second Audiology Systems University,” says Brianna Young, AuD, clinical support audiology supervisor at Audiology Systems and coordinator for the event. “Our educational offerings are developed in close collaboration with audiologists who collectively have more than 100 years of clinical experience. We want to extend this experience to students and give them the opportunity to learn more about the field of audiology in a non-traditional way.”
Audiology Systems invited a guest speaker to present their background and journey in the audiology profession, as well as present a three lecture and hands on about video head impulse testing. Kristin Janky, PhD is the director of vestibular services at Boystown National Research Hospital. She facilitated a three-part presentation on why and how she obtained her PhD, how to diagnose vestibular disorders with the ICS Impulse® and a hands-on session on video head impulse testing (vHIT).
