Michigan Medicine’s Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Department announces the availability of a twelve-month post-doctoral Audiology Fellowship with a focus on Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring (IOM) beginning in June 2022. This is a full-time salaried position with full medical benefits.
The IOM Fellow participates in preoperative, perioperative and postoperative evaluations of patients scheduled for otologic, head and neck, neurologic and selected other surgical inpatient and outpatient procedures that require cranial nerve monitoring. Audiologists monitor more than 700 surgical procedures each year using sensory and motor evoked potentials and electromyography for patients with conditions such as acoustic neuroma, chronic ear disease, trigeminal neuralgia, head and neck cancer, and congenital hearing loss requiring cochlear implantation.
Candidates must possess a graduate degree in Audiology from an accredited institution and be licensed as an audiologist in Michigan prior to beginning the position. Demonstrated clinical experience in clinical neurophysiology is a plus. The Fellow will work in Audiology with clinicians who assess and manage over 18,000-20,000 patients annually. The selected candidate may participate in clinical research endeavors during the Fellowship.
Interested candidates should use the UMHS online application process (link and job number below).
