Purdue University and the Indiana University (IU) School of Medicine, Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery formed a joint Doctor of Audiology (AuD) program approved in 2002. Students gain foundational academic knowledge and clinical experience during the first 3 years of the program at Purdue University. During the 4th year of the program, students are placed at the IU Medical Center in Indianapolis and continue to gain experience in diagnostics, hearing aids, and cochlear implants. Sixteen to 18 audiologists are involved in clinical teaching of these 4th-year students. Two administrative positions have been created in order to manage this clinical program. The Medical Center Liaison at Purdue University and the Coordinator of Medical Center Clinical Audiology Education at the IU Medical Center have specific responsibilities that create an organizational structure for both the audiologists and the students. These positions provide continued, clear communication between the faculty and audiologists at both campuses. These positions are critical in the success of the administration of the fourth year clinical experience of the joint AuD program.
