Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Faculty Research Symposium
07:00am - 12:00pm, Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center, Room 6150

Welcome to the Johns Hopkins Center for Hearing and Balance. The Center includes researchers, teachers, clinicians, and trainees in the Hopkins community. The goal of the Center is to perform research and train new investigators, for both basic and clinical applications. Research is centered on auditory (hearing) and vestibular (balance) function in normal subjects and in patients with hearing or balance disorders.

The Center for Hearing and Balance faculty provides a comprehensive course on Structure and Function of the Auditory and Vestibular Systems (580.625) 

See links to exemplar curricula for EN 580.625 (Fall 2017) , EN 580.625 (Fall 2015) and EN 580.626 (Fall 2012)
