The course is designed for all those clinicians who have a reasonable knowledge of vestibular assessment and rehabilitation but are looking to build on this foundation. Delegates will be provided with a pre-course reading list, which should maximise their learning opportunities during the course. Course material and refreshments are included in the registration fee (including evening workshop).

As with all of the Advanced Audiology Masterclasses, this course also forms part of our MSc in Advanced Audiology.
