Macquarie University provides training to staff from Jilin University, China
In August, four staff from Jilin University, Changchun, China – two otologists and two audiological technicians – visited Macquarie University for three weeks to receive comprehensive training in standard adult assessment and were certified upon successful completion of the program. The training provided an opportunity to develop knowledge and clinical skills.
The program was led by Phillip Nakad, Audiology Manager, MQ Health Speech & Hearing Clinic, and Alisa Gourlie, Senior Clinical Educator, with input from Yee-Foong Stone, Clinical Education Manager and Catherine McMahon, Director of Audiology.
This training will be followed up with onsite training from three Macquarie University Clinical Educators in October, to scale this to the three comprehensive hospitals affiliated with Jilin University.
