During the first year of study for the AuD degree, students are introduced to clinical practice in the Wayne State Audiology Clinic. The university clinic is open 20 hours per week and offers free diagnostic audiologic services to adult and pediatric patients in the Detroit area. The clinic is a registered diagnostic follow-up center for the Michigan Early Hearing Detection and Intervention program.

The clinic is staffed by clinical educators from the Henry Ford Health System. The instructors have primary clinical responsibilities within the Henry Ford Health System.

During their first and second semesters, students spend 8 hours per week in the university clinic. During non-clinic hours, students utilize the clinical space for laboratory exercises designed to strengthen their knowledge base. During the first year, students learn clinical skills in a sheltered environment. Clinical competency examinations are used to determine student preparedness to progress toward more advanced clinical training.
