During this long-established masterclass you will have opportunities to interact with a number of established international experts in the fields of tinnitus and hyperacusis and learn from them about theory, good clinical practice and recent research. You will also have an opportunity to discuss your own experience with a range of professionals from different backgrounds.

Days one and two (14th and 15th Feb)  will take place in person in the Ear Institute and focus on tinnitus, hyperacusis and misophonia in adults. Day three (1st March) will take place online and focus on tinnitus, hyperacusis and misophonia in children.

We strongly recommend that you attend all three days. Even if your primary interest is in paediatrics, a lot of the background information covered on days one and two will be relevant. If you have prior training or experience in tinnitus work, however, you may attend day three only if you wish.

The online day will take place in real time with lectures and discussions over Zoom. It will also be recorded, and all attendees of Days 1 and 2 will have full access to the recordings.
