Hypatia Bronze Electrophysiology Scroll

Oct 08th - All Day

This workshop is suitable for NHS Audiologists who would like to learn the skills to start practicing evoked potentials or would like a refresher as they haven’t applied these skills in practice for many years.

The workshop is also suitable for clinicians in the private sector giving skills, resources and tools to see appropriate patients in the private setting, whether it be for hearing threshold evaluation and/or medico-legal purposes.

Hypatia Workshops are designed to be small with no more than 10 people attending and although there is some theory the main focus is on the practical components of each subject.  Due to the small teaching groups we can tailor content to the delegates attending, giving a much more bespoke experience. 

Workshops have been designed with patients in mind giving clinicians tools, ideas and resources to help achieve optimal patient experience and outcomes.

Hypatia Training was founded by Amy Lennox who is passionate about delivering education and training ensuring it is accessible to all that want to access it.
