Organization profile

Organisation profile

Established in September 2001 as the Lions Ear and Hearing Institute (LEHI), the ESIA continues to have a close relationship with the Lions Hearing Foundation and the Lions Club membership.

Today, our charter is to connect our research, clinical, educational and community activities to the challenges faced by those who suffer from hearing loss and balance disorders. 

We aim to match the advantages of unique clinical successes with innovative research and state-of-the-art training and clinical practice.

The Institute is affiliated with the UWA School of Surgery's Ear Sciences Centre
