Helping people communicate through world-class education, research, treatment, and outreach.

Our faculty perform cutting-edge research that has clear health relevance. Faculty have been issued patents, created spin-off companies, and developed technology that benefits people in Wisconsin and the nation.

Audiology Takes on Rural Noise
UWSHC audiologists and Au.D. students travel to rural Wisconsin each summer for a unique goal: to prevent hearing loss at the Tomah Truck and Tractor Pull. Tractor pulls are motorsports with powerful, modified engines, and they are LOUD!
The UWSHC provides the hearing and middle ear screenings for over 1,000 children who attend Reach Dane each year. The clinic also provides speech and language screenings for children whose teachers have identified speech or language concerns.
The Wisconsin Infant and Children’s Statewide Hearing program provides hearing instruments for a six month period to newly identified deaf and hard of hearing children who are not Medicaid eligible and don't have other hearing aid insurance coverage.
