The University of Kansas Medical Center offers important hearing care services for individuals of all ages. Two audiology clinics help serve our community in two accessible locations: the Audiology Clinic at KU Medical Center, Kansas City, Kan., and the Hartley Audiology Clinic at the KU Edwards Campus in Overland Park, Kan.
Clinical services are provided by certified doctoral-level audiologists who are also faculty members. Building upon this relationship with the KU Department of Hearing
and Speech, these clinics not only serve the
community’s hearing health care needs but provide
students in KU's Doctor of Audiology (AuD) program with opportunities for essential experience in a modern clinical setting.
In August 2011, a satellite clinic opened, allowing the original audiology clinic at the medical center campus to bring comprehensive hearing services to Johnson County and the surrounding areas. Funding for the new clinic was graciously provided by the Hartley family.
The mission of the KU Medical Center Audiology Clinics is to provide the best services possible as a clinic and an educational resource. The audiologists strive to deliver the highest-quality care to our patients and to instruct future audiologists to provide the same quality of care. We also aim to be an educational resource for the community to raise awareness regarding hearing loss and its effect on daily living.
The clinics seek to improve quality of life and well-being for the whole person via services provided and/or through appropriate referrals. Associated with a major academic health center, the clinics have access to many referrals and resources that may be necessary following a diagnostic hearing evaluation.
