Signia launched its 2023 Signia Student University program, offering advice for student hearing care professionals in audiology doctorate programs.

Signia unveiled its 2023 Signia Student University program, complete with an all-new lineup of regional professional training sessions set to take place in August and September 2023.

The program is designed to connect with and provide expert advice to the next generation of hearing care professionals (HCPs) and is free to register for all students in audiology doctorate programs.

“This year’s Signia Student University program tackles the current challenges and exciting trends within our industry, and we look forward to gathering with key leaders and eager students who share our passion about the hearing care industry,” said Mike O’Neil, Signia president. “We’ve created a comprehensive lineup of sessions to help prepare students entering the audiology field, and we are excited to share our technological breakthroughs and industry advice with these young professionals.”

Students can choose to attend one of four in-person Signia Student University programs: Tuesday, August 1, in Dallas, Texas; Wednesday, August 9th, in Signia’s new headquarters in Iselin, New Jersey; Thursday, August 10th, in Schaumburg, Illinois; Thursday, September 28th, in San Jose, California, in conjunction with the California Academy of Audiology conference. Students who attend an event in-person will receive special Signia Student University gifts, including backpacks, water bottles and baseball caps.

Every program’s keynote speech will be delivered by Brian Taylor, AuD, senior director of audiology at Signia, and all sessions will be led by industry experts, including Jeanette Fitzke, AuD, and James Thornburg, AuD, covering increasingly important topics in the hearing care industry including real-ear verification, ear impressions, and professional interviewing tips – all of which aim to empower students with valuable knowledge and insights as they prepare for careers in the hearing care industry.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about Signia’s latest technologies and innovations including Signia’s Augmented Xperience (AX) platform, the hearing aids built on Signia AX – Styletto AX, Pure Charge&Go AX and Insio Charge&Go AX – as well as how to navigate Signia software to achieve the best patient satisfaction.

“Through a thoughtfully crafted curriculum, Signia is dedicated to equipping audiology students with the essential skills needed to address the industry’s most pressing trends and challenges,” said Lisa Klop, director of clinical education at Signia. “This year, our program leverages the knowledge of top hearing health experts who bring decades of invaluable experience. In addition to the interactive educational component, attending students can look forward to networking with Signia staff and their peers throughout the event.”
