The Moog Center for Deaf Education is a private, non-profit oral educational center for children with hearing loss. Audiologists provide services to children from birth to 21 years of age, and work closely with Deaf Educators and Speech-Language Pathologists.
The purpose of this training program is to provide extensive experience in pediatric audiology with an emphasis on cochlear implants. By completion, individuals should feel confident applying critical thinking to outcomes-based management of pediatric patients and be independent in providing all audiologic services offered at the Moog Center.
Responsibilities include otoscopy; acoustic immittance testing; air and bone conduction testing via BOA, VRA, and CPA; hearing aid selection, fitting and verification using real-ear measurements; cochlear implant and bone conduction device candidacy evaluation, programming and verification; aided soundfield and speech perception testing; remote microphone system evaluation, fitting and verification; interaction with staff; and counseling parents. Other opportunities may include participation in IFSP/IEP meetings, providing in-services, and interdisciplinary collaboration.
Direct supervision will be provided by 4 experienced pediatric audiologists who hold Certificates of Clinical Competency in Audiology, 3 of whom are American Board of Audiology Certified, and 2 of whom hold a Cochlear Implant Specialty Certification.
Interested individuals should be highly motivated, self-directed, and possess a strong interest in working with children with hearing loss, specifically those who have cochlear implants. Exceptional academic, communication, and interpersonal skills are needed.
Documentation of personal or university provided malpractice coverage is required.
Due to COVID-19, the Moog Center will not be accepting applications for the 2021/2022 academic year.
