Clinical Assistant Professor

Dr. Emily Patterson earned her Bachelor of Arts in Audiology and Speech Sciences at Michigan State University, and Doctorate of Audiology at Purdue University. She completed a clinical fellowship at the Indiana University Medical Center (Indianapolis) which focused on adult and pediatric diagnostic audiologic evaluation, vestibular testing, fitting and verification of hearing aids and cochlear implants. Prior to coming to Marquette University, Dr. Patterson practiced as an audiologist in three rural southwestern Wisconsin hospitals performing adult and pediatric diagnostic evaluation, in addition to fitting and verification of hearing aid technology. While in the hospital setting, she worked closely with primary care physicians, otolaryngologists, educational audiologists, speech pathologists, and skilled nursing personnel. Dr. Patterson joined the Marquette University Speech Pathology and Audiology Department in 2015. She teaches three courses: Introduction to Audiology, Hearing Disorders, and Audiological Rehabilitation.

Dr. Patterson supervises undergraduate students interested in pursuing audiology at the graduate level in the on-campus audiology clinic. She coordinates opportunities and supervises graduate speech-language pathology students to provide hearing screenings. Many of these events are provided in collaboration with multiple medical clinics in the Milwaukee community who serve uninsured and/or medically underserved populations. Dr. Patterson also advises graduate speech pathology clinicians working with hearing impaired clients to provide aural rehabilitation and amplification management.
