The Audiology Department at Wake Forest Baptist Health offers comprehensive diagnostic testing for patients from birth through adulthood, as well as cutting edge amplification options. Our staff includes 15 audiologists who are committed to providing quality care to individuals with all degrees of hearing loss. We all enjoy teaching and working with students.
In order to meet the unique needs of both children and adults, we have three clinic sites. Our clinic located at the main hospital provides diagnostic and intervention services for children, including newborns. Services at the main hospital also include sedated and non-sedated ABRs, auditory processing evaluations, and osseointegrated devices, and hearing aids. Our clinic located in the Medical Plaza Miller Street facility, offers diagnostic and rehabilitative care for the adult population including hearing aids, osseointegrated devices, tinnitus assessment and management, and vestibular assessment. Both adult and pediatric cochlear implants are seen at Medical Plaza Miller. The Clemmons office offers both adult and pediatric services.
Following the application process, students who are being considered for the externship will be invited for an in-person interview. This allows you to see our clinics, meet the staff and ensure that this a good placement that will fit your needs. You will also meet our current students who can offer information about their externship experience.
There will be 2 positions available where the students alternate weekly between the adult and pediatric clinics.
