This is a recently activated course originating from the Educational Center of the Civil Hospital of Venice, which has now expanded to the University of Padua in response to the demand of professionals in the field of audiometrics. The course allows you to acquire the fundamental theoretical knowledge of hearing and the main pathologies connected to it, including the connection between hearing and language. You will cover topics of cross-cutting interests such as psychology, electronics, and economics. The practical approach allows you to learn how to perform the techniques of an audiometrist which are non-invasive tests such as audiometric examination, psycho-acoustic, and electrophysiological tests. You will have the opportunity to enter the workforce by carrying out your profession in both public and private structures and as a freelancer.
