Summer 2021 Fellows Program
The Johns Hopkins Cochlear Center for Hearing and Public Health Summer Fellows Program is designed for clinicians and researchers in different regions of the world who are pursuing public health research and projects focused on addressing hearing loss in older adults. The program offers a blended classroom pedagogy of online lectures and "in-person" discussions facilitated by Cochlear Center faculty. This modified, virtual approach allows us to continue our international training work regardless of ongoing or future travel restrictions, and its inherent efficiencies make it scalable to a larger number of clinicians.
The Summer 2021 program has concluded. Eighteen Latin American Fellows hailing from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Mexico each completed five learning modules, absorbed 27 on-demand lectures, and put forth an estimated 20 hours of work to complete the program. The lectures-on-demand program concluded with hour-long live sessions with Center faculty that covered topics including clinical trials, hearing health policy, cognition and gerontology, and developing new models of care.
We are ready to identify our partner and geography for the 2022 Summer Fellows Program. If your institution is interested in exploring this training opportunity, please contact the Cochlear Center at JHSPHCochlearCenter@jhu.edu.
