Certificate Course in Cochlear Implant
The progress made over the last decade in cochlear implants, surgical techniques, and speech processing strategies has been phenomenal. There has been vast improvement in functional outcomes when comparing early single channel devices, which provided basic speech awareness and improved speechreading ability, to current digitally-based technology, where open-set speech recognition no longer amazes the clinician. With improved technology and outcomes, some assume the cochlear implant is the best technique available and more surgeons need to be trained for the same.
Hence IMMAST management feels the need to start diagnostic and therapeutic hands-on Cochlear implant Training as a new forte to enter.
