2015-2016 SAA Education Committee
The SAA Education Committee has continued working diligently to develop resources and provide relevant information to support audiology students and their interests. The committee volunteers have contributed a number of articles to SAAy Anything and Audiology Today. Topics have addressed the transition from student to new professional, the PhD shortage in audiology, and research training opportunities for AuD students. Additional resources included the creation of a PowerPoint to raise awareness of audiology as a career path for high school students, and the modification of externship application resource guides for current AuD students. Other major projects included an eAudiology web seminar series to supplement graduate student coursework and the dissemination of an externship survey that investigated students’ perceptions of the current externship application process. We are also proud to have worked with the Accreditation Commission for Audiology Education (ACAE) to provide students with information about graduate audiology education standards.
