Diagnostic Audiology Program
Applicants must meet requirements set forth by the Massachusetts state licensing law for qualifying for a Supervised Professional Practice. Upon selection, the extern must submit a Supervised Professional Practice plan with the state. Forms and rules and regulations for externs may be found at:
- Under Applications and Forms, select Audiologists Application For Licensure and scroll to the final pages where pertinent forms are found.
It is expected that externs will come with extensive pediatric audiology experience, and be facile with all behavioral pediatric test techniques and have experience conducting frequency-specific threshold ABR assessment on infants and young children.
Universities must have a training contract on file with Boston Children's Hospital. Upon being offered an externship, students should put the Director of Diagnostic Audiology in touch with an academic advisor to assure a training contract is either active or negotiated in advance of a May start.
