About Meghan K. Spriggs, AuD, CCC-A
Meghan K. Spriggs, AuD, is a certified audiologist who cares for adults with hearing loss and ear disorders, including sensorineural, mixed and conductive hearing loss, tinnitus, hearing loss with age (presbycusis), otosclerosis, noise-induced hearing loss, and congenital and acquired hearing loss. Her primary area of interest and expertise is in implantable hearing technologies, including cochlear implantation and osseointegrated hearing implants. Additionally, she sees patients for audiometric evaluation, tympanometry, otoacoustic emissions, speech perception assessment, hearing aid evaluation and fitting, and aural rehabilitation and counseling regarding communication strategies and use of hearing assistive technology.
Spriggs' past research interests include study of hair cell regeneration in the avian inner ear. Spriggs is an ad-hoc reviewer for the International Journal of Audiology and Otology & Neurotology, and is a member of American Speech-Language Hearing Association's Special Interest Group, Issues in Higher Education.
Before joining UC San Diego Health, Spriggs served as a clinical applications specialist for Cochlear Americas, in which she provided audiologic support for cochlear implant clinics. She has also worked as an audiology consultant at the San Diego Regional Center, where she performed hearing screenings for developmentally delayed children. Her audiology clinical externship was completed at The Listening Center at Johns Hopkins, where she evaluated cochlear implant candidacy and programmed cochlear implants for pediatric and adult patients. Her experience includes working with patients with multiple disabilities and diverse cultural backgrounds.
As a faculty member of the UCSD/SDSU joint doctoral program in audiology, Spriggs teaches graduate-level courses to second-year audiology students in temporal bone anatomy and neurophysiology, aural rehabilitation, and cochlear implants and other implantable hearing devices. She has been invited to present at regional conferences on implantable hearing technology, cochlear implant candidacy and outcomes, and amplification options for single-sided deafness, conductive or mixed hearing loss.
Spriggs earned a doctoral degree in audiology (AuD) from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. She holds the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology (CCC-A) from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
