The student will be assisted in securing an externship position in a clinic that meets the department's guidelines. Our faculty externship coordinator works with each student to find the optimal location and practice that will provide the best learning experience. Students will be placed in a full-time externship where they will be exposed to a wide variety of clinical experiences including diagnostics, vestibular evaluation and treatment, electrophysiologic evaluation, counseling, amplification, etc. Clinical experiences will vary depending on the site and the scope of practice at that site.
The student will work under the direction and supervision of a licensed audiologist, preferably one holding an Au.D. or other earned doctorate in the field.
NSU Audiology students have completed externships in numerous sites across the country and internationally, including private practice, VA Medical Center, children's hospital and major hospital medical center.
