Training boost for hospital’s audiology department
- Credit: PA
Norfolk's biggest hospital has been named one of just a handful across the country to provide a scientific training programme in audiology.
The three-year work-based programme will be run at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (N&N), after the N&N was accredited by the National School of Healthcare Science.
It means trainees will be offered full-time training, during which they will be employed by the hospital.
Trainees will also complete a part-time master's degree as part of the programme.
Dr John Fitzgerald, consultant clinical scientist and head of audiology at the N&N, said: 'I'm delighted that we have been accredited as an STP training centre and can continue to provide excellent training for scientists into the future.'
