Our faculty at Eastern take considerable interest in their students. Many bring a wealth of personal clinical experience to the department, teach in both the undergraduate and graduate programs, and supervise clinical practicum students in a variety of settings, including our own University Hearing and Speech Clinic at the Spokane campus. Many faculty are well published researchers who mentor a wide topic of interests.
