Bill Hodgetts | Audiology | Co-Chair

University of Alberta

I am a Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Alberta. I hold a joint appointment at the Institute for Reconstructive Sciences in Medicine (iRSM) where I am program director for audiology and bone conduction amplification (BCA). I obtained a B.A. (Psychology) and M.Sc. (Audiology) from the University of Western Ontario and a Ph.D. (Rehab Sciences) from the University of Alberta.

My 3 main areas of research are: 1) How do we improve upon the prescription, fitting and verification procedures for bone conduction hearing aids? 2) How do we improve uptake and adherence to hearing services? 3) how do we maximize outcomes by considering/manipulating additional, non-auditory factors that exist in the treatment context.

I teach in the areas of hearing science/audiology, research methods and statistics and aural rehabilitation.
