Research Achievement

Dr. Ahmad A. Alanazi, a dual doctoral student in audiology and communication sciences and disorders who graduated in May 2017 from University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and is now an Assistant Professor at King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Dr. Alanazi received two grants from the Dean’s Society, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences totaling more than $6,000. His research focused on using simulation — both an infant simulator and standardized patients as parents — to teach students how to conduct hearing screenings on infants, how to make a hearing diagnosis and counsel parents whose child has an identified hearing loss, and finally, how to fit an amplification device on a baby. His studies have been published in the American Journal of Audiology, the Journal of Early Hearing Detection and Intervention, the Internet Journal of Allied Health Sciences and Practice, and the Canadian Journal of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.
