This is a four-semester full time post graduate dual PG program in Audiology and Speech Pathology with two years duration. The duration of each semester is six months. In recent years, there has been an increase in the global demand for audiologists due to the modernization of audiology, especially in the western and Middle East countries. This has resulted in a major drain of skilled audiologists to these countries and a shortage of qualified audiology and speech pathology professionals in India. Our M.sc.SPEECH LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY AND M.sc.AUDIOLOGY program was started in the year 2006 in order to fill this gap. This program is affiliated to the University of Calicut and recognized by the Rehabilitation Council of India.
