Sharon Campbell has won Audiology Souths inaugural Clinical Excellence prize for the top Master of Audiology Year 1 student in clinical practice at the University of Canterbury.

Sharon, who lives in Palmerston North, says the prize is a wonderful acknowledgment of the hard work she has put into her studies. Her life at present is split between study, family and part-time work in Palmerston North, and clinics, classes and course assessments in Christchurch.

“I so appreciate the money that Audiology South has gifted to me,” she says. “I’ll be putting it towards my travel costs to Christchurch. I’d just like to acknowledge this generous prize with my sincere thanks.”

Sharon says she is also grateful to her husband and family who have kept her going, which has been a challenging task for them at the best of times, and to the clinical educators, lecturers, and her classmates at Canterbury University who are all extremely supportive. Sharon hopes to submit her final thesis at the end of this year for her final assessment in February 2021.

The Clinical Practice paper assesses a clinician’s technical abilities, their application of theory to diagnostic and habilitation procedures, and their understanding of decision-making protocols to find the best solutions for a client. This may include treatment, further audiological assessments or referrals to other health specialists and associated professionals.

“Audiology South is delighted to sponsor this award as it closely aligns with our own practice values of striving to deliver the best clinical outcomes for our clients, every day and in every interaction we have with them,” says Anthony Rowcroft, director and senior audiologist. “We look forward to officially presenting the award to Sharon.”
