Persons with vestibular dysfunction frequently have associated or co-morbid hearing loss. This course will help clinicians strengthen connections between their knowledge of the anatomy and neurophysiology of the vestibular and auditory systems and their clinical practice. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
Please note, this advanced level course is recommended for the clinician that already has a basic knowledge base of the vestibular and auditory systems.
