SAA Conference: C.S.I.: Case-Study Investigations
Location: Hilton, Avalon A/B – First Floor
Students are presented with a great deal of information during their academic training. In the externship year, they are then expected to synthesize this information and make clinical-care decisions.
To better prepare students for their externship year (and their future clinical practice), the Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) has launched a new conference, whereby internationally recognized audiologists will present clinical cases and lead discussions on clinical problem-solving. Audience participation will be encouraged.
