PACS student interacting with CID students

Our students build their knowledge and skills through classroom instruction and immersive, hands-on student teaching experiences. They learn about and engage in the teaching process, from the first diagnosis and early intervention through family-centered counseling and educational options for the child. Teaching experiences are available at a number of local and national sites serving children ages birth through grade 12. These sites include both public and private schools, including the on-campus Central Institute for the Deaf.

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.
