the area of amplification devices in the last few years. Introduction
of digital technologies has revolutionized the hearing aid in form as
well as function. This course will trace the history of these
developments, discuss the basic electronics involved, and explore the
tremendous possibilities that lay ahead. Part of the course along with
its laboratory component will allow students to develop the clinical
knowledge necessary to select, fit, and evaluate these modern
amplification devices.
