Save the Date: Maximizing Performance in Cochlear Implant Recipients – Programming Concepts


December 4-5, 2015 | NYU Langone Medical Center

Course Objective:

This unique conference was inspired by a “Fitting for Performance” international debate hosted by Professor Paul Govaerts, in Antwerp, Belgium, in October 2012. The goal of that conference was to bring together professionals involved in the testing and fitting of cochlear implants and to attempt to bring some consensus to the programming of cochlear implants.

This conference aims to further that goal by addressing novel approaches to device programming such as CT guided programming, genetic algorithms, and the role of objective measure in the programming process. Special consideration will be given to the programming of patients with single sided deafness as well as bi-modal and electro-acoustic stimulation. Ample time will be devoted to lively discussion and audience participation.
