UTC Health Students Engage with the Sheffield Hospitals
Emma Johnson from the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals visited Year 12 Health students and talked about the role of an Audiologist and pathways into audiology as a health science career.
Sheffield City Region is at the heart of these new services and industries with world-class research and elite sports facilities, alongside a growing healthcare technologies sector. The healthcare and medical professions are in great need of young people with technical and scientific skills-not just for the jobs of today, but also for new jobs that are emerging.
Emma also shared a case study with the students and examined how audiology and other departments can support an individual with hearing loss and provide them with person centred care. She highlighted the benefits of pursuing a career within this industry, as it is rewarding and is an expanding field. This talk will feed directly into the student’s assessment work for Unit 1: Building positive relationships.
