Audiology Services & Appointments

As the COVID-19 situation unfolds, we are continually reviewing all our diagnostic and hearing aid services. At this stage, our clinic is not seeing patients face to face, but we are exploring ways that we may be able to provide some services and will regularly update our website to reflect this.

We still have Audiologists who can talk to you over the phone and we also have a full remote reception service. To get in touch, please do not come to the building but instead call us on 9035 5333 or send us email at aud-reception@unimelb.edu.au

  • How appointments are run

    We are an Audiology and Speech Pathology Clinic that treats teaching and learning as core business, while delivering high quality patient care. We provide experiential learning and students are included in all facets of the clinic. At all times students are supervised by an experienced clinician, and the clinic operates on the appointments times and structures as would be expected in a non-teaching clinic. At the same time the clinic is dedicated to providing patient-centred best practise service for the community.
