Audiology & Speech clinics, HUSM
OLD POST: HUSM will soon open its Speech Pathology Unit. This unit will contain both speech pathologists and audiologists under one roof. Talks are still on-going and this unit will duly open this year. There are presently one male and two female speech pathologists. There are two male audiologists. We hope many more students will take up speech pathology or audiology as their career options and join this unit. There are good prospects as speech pathologists or audiologists, as there is on campus locum via USAINS as well as outside locum. Speech pathologists/audiologists can expect to earn RM200/hour if they are highly experienced.
