Learn More About Anne Hogan, AuD, PhD
Anne Hogan, MS, PhD, is an Assistant Professor and Clinical Audiologist within the School of Audiology in the College of Health Professions at Pacific University, in Hillsboro, Oregon. Dr. Hogan’s role is divided between didactic instruction, research, administrative work, and clinical supervision of students. While she sees patients across the spectrum, her clinical focus is on working within an interprofessional team to evaluate adults with dizziness and balance disorders, especially ones who have not been successfully responded to treatment. Dr. Hogan completed her clinical degree in 2002 from Southwest Missouri State University, and received her initial clinical training and experience at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina. She went on to complete her research training in 2013 from James Madison University. Her research is centered on developing ways to both objectively measure outcomes of vestibular rehabilitation therapy, and to objectively and efficiently measure balance and vestibular function for epidemiologic studies. Additional areas of interest include improving education in the realm of Vestibular Assessment and Rehabilitation, and creating stronger interprofessional collaborations in the classroom, clinic, and in research.
