Charles Darwin U announces much-needed masters

Huzza! the course will “train much-needed audiologists” in the Northern Territory

Too right they are needed.  In 2019 the Menzies School of Health Research warned nine in every ten Aboriginal children, under the age of three, in the Northern Territory, suffer from otitis media, or “glue ear” (CMM July 31 2019).

And yet, CDU states, in 2019, 3,100 First Nations children and young people in the NT were on a waiting list to see an audiologist.

The announcement extends CDU’s health education service strategy – a pharmacy masters was announced last week, (CMM Jan 28).
