News from Audiology Education Summit II

Audiology Education Summit II: Strengthening Partnerships in Clinical Education   

was held in Phoenix on February 3–5, 2006. Representatives from the American Academy of Audiology (Pat Kricos, Craig Newman and Lisa Hunter) served on the Advisory Planning Committee along with individuals representing the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology and the Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders. The purpose of the meeting was to share information among clinical preceptors and educators about evolving practices in audiology doctoral programs, and to recommend best practices for universities and clinical sites to incorporate into their training models.The Summit Planning Committee will be issuing a written report in the next few months, which will be disseminated to Academy membership and all Summit attendees. It is hoped that this report will identify many areas of consensus, and thus can serve as a basis for improvement and standardization across audiology doctoral programs in the future. The written report will also identify areas in which consensus does not currently exist, which will require further study and discussion.A preliminary report will appear in the upcoming March/April issue of Audiology Today and can currently be accessed online at http://www.audiology.org/atextra/20060223.php.
