The Cochlear Implant Program at the University of Michigan has evolved over the past several years and is strongly dependent on a team approach to clinical care. Members of the team work closely together to assist patients and their families as they participate in the implant evaluation and rehabilitation process. We feel fortunate that we have been able to help so many profoundly deaf individuals and look forward to continued growth and future advances that will inevitably come about in the field of cochlear implants.

Acknowledgments
The following staff provide invaluable assistance with the implant program: Connie Spak (Assistant Director of Audiology and Electrophysiology), Louise Lougheed (audiologist), Sara Hieber (audiologist), Carissa Ashbaugh (audiologist), Carol Connor (speech-language pathologist), and Yvonne Beerens (secretary). We would also like to acknowledge the late John L. Kemink. Dr. Kemink was instrumental in the development and success of our program; we dearly miss his expertise, his love for life, and of course, his sense of humor.
