Maryland Cochlear Implant Center for Excellence
Mission: To deliver advanced care to people with hearing loss.
Originally funded by MPower, the Maryland Cochlear Implant Center for Excellence (MCICE) combines the research and educational strengths of UMCP in audiology and speech-language pathology with the surgical and clinical expertise from School of Medicine faculty at UMB to provide educational training, clinical services, and basic and translational biomedical research on cochlear implants (CIs.)
MCICE provides the people of Maryland with premier clinical services in the area of cochlear implants, improving their health and opportunities for engagement and communication, while also providing the students in the state with unparalleled opportunities to learn about both the science of cochlear implants and how to provide clinical services to implantees. Furthermore, MCICE provides the nation with new research findings that enhance our understanding of how best to improve human hearing.
