The CHIC clinic provides coordinated medical
and developmental care, including assessment and management of infants and
children with permanent hearing loss (sensorineural / ANSD / permanent
conductive e.g. microtia).
The clinic also offers ongoing care and
surveillance for families who cannot access a community paediatrician, those
with complex needs, and those who are not engaged in early intervention

caring for children with hearing loss while offering a consultative service. The
clinic supports training and research activities through the Murdoch Children’s
Research Institute and the University of Melbourne.
