Pediatric Audiology Trainees
|posters||presentations||research and other materials|
In 2009, AUCD began funding nine Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities (LEND) programs to expand and augment their pediatric audiology training efforts. The sub-awards to the LEND programs were made possible through a contract to AUCD from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) of the Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA). The competition generated a great deal of interest and in 2011 AUCD was able to expand the program to include an additional two sub-awards.
Each of the 11 sub-awardee receives approximately $65,000 per year to increase the number of short and long term pediatric audiology trainees and to expand didactic content and augment clinical experiences in infant/pediatric audiology. Funded programs develop new or adapt existing curricula for use in an accredited graduate level audiology training program.
LEND Pediatric Audiology Trainees develop clinical skills, leadership experience and engage in activities that promote interdisciplinary collaboration.
Since 2009, a total of 66 full term and 85 intermediate term LEND Pediatric Audiology Trainees have participated in this program. This section has been created to highlight and share some of the many resources developed by these trainees, the future leaders in Pediatric Audiology.
