Clinical or field education in semesters three, four, five and six.
Students spend part of Semester 6 at both an internal and external field education experience.
External field education generally occurs in the broader Greater Toronto Area, so travel will be required. Students should be aware that field education opportunities may be located anywhere within the province, especially if suitable opportunities cannot be found in Toronto and surrounding areas. Students are responsible for travel and other associated costs related to external field education opportunities.
Students are responsible for finding their own field experience opportunities but will be supported in this process by program faculty.
Program faculty have strong partnerships with industry and professional associations so that they can fully prepare graduates for employment.
The employment rate continues to be high in related career sectors, including:
In Ontario, hearing aids may only be dispensed by prescription from a professional authorized by the Regulated Health Professions Act.
Graduates are eligible for full membership in the Association of Hearing Instrument Practitioners of Ontario (AHIP) as a Hearing Instrument Dispenser (HID); annual dues are paid to maintain membership in AHIP. Typically, graduates enroll in the Hearing Instrument Specialist (HIS) Internship Program and successfully complete 1,000 hours of practical work within 36 months of graduation. In addition, graduates must successfully complete the International Licensing Exam within the time period in order to become full Hearing Instrument Specialist (HIS) members of AHIP.
Full HIS members of AHIP can apply to become a hearing aid authorizer under the Ontario Ministry of Health's Assistive Devices Program (ADP).
