Lessons are not given in the academic year 2023/2024
Students will gain in-depth knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the audio-vestibular system. With the help of recent research, students will acquire expanded theoretical knowledge of electrophysiological measurements and vestibular assessment as a tool for developing clinical competence. Emphasis is placed on the choice of appropriate assessment tools and interpretation of results, seen in connection with the patient's state of health and everyday function. Students will gain broad insight into issues relevant to clinical practice and knowledge of collaboration across professions.
