Otometrics/Audiology Systems—a division of Natus Medical and a source for Madsen, Aurical, ICS, and Bio-logic branded equipment—announced the new dates for its 4th Annual Audiology Systems University (ASIu). This two-day educational event was introduced in 2015 as an invitation-only workshop. Since 2015, close to 70 students participated from universities across the country according to Otometrics/Audiology Systems, including: Arizona State University, Ball State University, Central Michigan University, Northern Illinois University, Northwestern University, The Ohio State University, University of Arizona, University of Colorado-Boulder, University of Illinois, University of South Florida, University of the Pacific, and the University of Wisconsin. In 2018, Audiology Systems University will launch its first nationwide application process.
Students who are enrolled and completing courses towards their doctorate in audiology (AuD) are encouraged to send their application online (www.audiologysystems.com/ASIu). They can also email this year’s ASIu coordinators: Otometrics Product Manager Brianna Young, AuD at: [email protected] and Field Clinical Audiologist Jeanette Fitzke, AuD at: [email protected]. The ASIu Class of 2018 will take place on March 29-30 at the Otometrics/Audiology Systems corporate office in Schaumburg, Ill.
Audiology Systems University allows students to network, learn about other audiology career paths—aside from the clinical practice—and receive hands-on head video head impulse (vHIT), vestibular evoked myogenic potential (VEMP), and probe microphone measurement (PMM), or real-ear, training.
“This year, our goal for this event is to make ourselves as accessible as possible to the students, give attendees insight into the manufacturing side of the industry, and give students the opportunity to attend lectures and workshops that they might not have access to in graduate school,” said Young.
Senior Market Development Manager Wendy Switalski, AuD, will continue to facilitate the hearing aid-verification workshop with hands-on training using the Aurical fitting solution. Switaski will discuss topics like private practice audiology and how to complete hearing aid verification utilizing PMMs.
ASIu also has the privilege of having Kristen Janky, PhD as the featured lecturer for the fourth year consecutive year. Janky, the director of vestibular services at Boys Town National Research Hospital and President-Elect of the American Balance Society (ABS), will present a two-hour lecture about vHIT and VEMP testing. There will also be a hands-on workshop on how to complete vHIT and VEMP testing facilitated by Janky.
