I joined Aston Audiology in September 2016, having previously worked as a Trainee Clinical Scientist as part of the Scientist Training programme (STP). I worked in the different fields in audiology, with experience ranging from adult diagnostics, aural rehabilitation, paediatrics and vestibular clinics. As part of my previous role, I helped to supervise BSc students, as well as visiting medical and nursing students. I acted as a university representative and national themeboard representative for my course, as well as a co-chair of the North West Healthcare Trainee Network. Within these roles I was able to act as a port of call for students, to liaise with staff and colleagues across several platforms, and organise networking and learning events. I am very passionate about improving the student experience and helping promote the work that students and trainees do within this discipline. It therefore felt fitting that I was able undertake a role that is heavily student focused here in the university.
I teach and support within clinical skill sessions for both BSc and Foundation Degree audiology students. I also have links with Pharmacy and assist with delivering interprofessional learning as well as communication awareness sessions. I provide support and assist with placements.
Dissertations for both my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees focused on Paediatric Audiology.My MSc project looked at ‘Children’s Perception of Hearing Loss’.
