A unique part of our Audiology Doctorate program is the hands-on clinical training students receive. During the third year of studies our students are given the unique opportunity to work with practicing clinical audiologists in the Tampa Bay area. Our preceptors work in a wide range of clinics from VA Hospitals to private practices to hospitals to non-for-profit clinics. Our preceptors generously donate their time helping our students prepare for the demanding, ever-changing world of clinical audiology.
In this section both students and preceptors will find guidelines, academic calendars, evaluation forms, and information regarding upcoming preceptor continuing education trainings.
Preceptors: Please log on to Typhon
If you questions or difficulties with logging on or need help approving hours, please direct questions to Dr. Devon Weist: email@example.com
How to Become a Preceptor:
We welcome any audiologists who have an interest in becoming a preceptor. A large part of our student's success relies upon the clinical skills they learn hands-on outside of the classroom. Third year students after rotating through the USF Hearing Clinic complete three semesters of clinical rotations before beginning externship year. If you are interested in becoming a preceptor please complete the intake form below and send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Preceptor CEU Events:
As a way of thanking our preceptors for their hard work and dedication to our students and audiology program we offer CEU opportunities throughout the year. These events and meetings are meant to give back to the preceptors and also present them with tools and information to further enhance their precepting skills. Past experiences have included: Focus group regarding clinical practicum experiences and doctoral students emerging clinic skills, presentations on the latest technologic equipment available for clinical use, and we had the privilege of guest speaker Carol Cokely, Ph.D. (U of Texas at Dallas) sitting down with our preceptors to discuss effective skills for precepting today's generation of students. We look forward to providing many other opportunities for preceptor learning in the future and will post announcements as they become available.
