PACS student interacting with CID students

Our students build their knowledge and skills through classroom instruction and immersive, hands-on student teaching experiences. Teaching experiences are available at a number of local sites, which include both public and private schools that collectively serve more than 700 children who are deaf or hard of hearing; this includes the on-campus Central Institute for the Deaf. Teaching experiences outside of the St. Louis area are also available.

In addition, our nationally recognized medical school and hospitals provide unique opportunities, such as observing cochlear implant surgery seminars and touring a hospital neonatal intensive care unit.
