This course is designed as a state-of-the-art update on contemporary audiological practice, addressing a wide range of topics, including hearing science and diagnostics, pediatric audiology, tinnitus and hyperacusis, balance assessment and management, and amplification. It is intended primarily for practicing audiologists but will also benefit professionals engaged in hearing aid dispensing, audiology graduate students, physicians, and others involved in managing adults and children with hearing and vestibular disorders. The course format consists of lectures presented by renowned faculty from around the country and updates on new technology from manufacturer representatives.


  • Enhance understanding of advanced audiology practices through exploring the limitations of modern hearing aids in music processing, discussion of comprehensive speech in noise assessment techniques, reviewing clinical and research perspectives on frequency-lowering amplification, and understanding neurocognitive changes related to age and hearing loss, and the impact of amplification.
  • Improve clinical referrals and interventions by identifying when to refer patients for physical therapy and understanding the rehabilitation process, recognizing complications post-ear surgery and determining appropriate referral procedures, and implementing effective tinnitus management through group teleaudiology education.
  • Promote multidisciplinary collaboration and cultural competence through understanding the role of speech-language pathologists in audiology and education, engaging in discussions of cultural responsiveness, belonging, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), and participating in round table discussions on precepting and legislative updates affecting the field.
  • Advance knowledge in research and technology through reviewing updates on gene therapy for otoferlin-associated hearing loss, investigation of cortical neuroplasticity in children with cochlear implants, and exploring the rewiring brain and its implication for auditory rehabilitation.


In support of improving patient care, the University of California, San Francisco is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
