Auditory Implant Service

Category Archives: Research

Here at University of Southampton Auditory Implant Service, we are very committed to research in order to ultimately benefit our patients. We are also involved in teaching Audiology BSc and MSc students, and often they undertake a cochlear implant research project as their dissertation. You may be asked if you would like to take part in a research project. This is entirely your choice, and will not affect your other appointments at USAIS at all. If you do take part, your expenses will usually be paid.
