Student Placement Opportunity

Doctor of Audiology (AuD)


An important part of our commitment to the profession of audiology and our mission as an educational facility is to mentor future audiologists. We fulfill this commitment by offering a fourth year placement for Doctor of Audiology (AuD) students.

The AuD externship is typically a one year placement which consists of four predetermined rotations.

Rotation 1:  Diagnostic Audiology

Rotation 2:  Amplification and Aural Rehabilitation

Rotation 3:  Cochlear Implant

Rotation 4:  Cumulative Experience

Each of the rotations will last a minimum of twelve weeks and will occur in the order presented. However, if it is determined by the supervising audiologists that additional time is needed in a specific rotation, additional time will be scheduled accordingly. The rotations will be completed at the Koss Hearing and Balance Center, located at Froedtert Hospital; and the Koss Cochlear Implant Program at both Froedtert Hospital and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

Please note these rotations are subject to change based on individual student experience and education, as well as contract between Froedtert Hospital, the Medical College of Wisconsin, and the student's university.
