The 2022 PAVA symposium is held in a hybrid format. What does hybrid mean? In our case, it means that whether you fly to Minnesota or “Zoom-fly” to PAVA Village, we will see each other in person . . . Whether you attend in 3D or 2D, as we like to call it, there will be plenty of interaction, information and fun! We look forward to mingling with you in the virtual streets and 3D hallways! Internet Access and Zoom required for 2D (virtual) attendees.


  • Short Videos from each panelist will be posted on from August 9, 2022 to August 29, 2022.
  • We recommend viewing these videos prior to the conference. However, videos can be watched up to one week after the symposium for ASHA CEU credit.
  • Videos are between 12 and 14 minutes and will be added to your total minutes for ASHA CEU calculation within one week of the end of the Symposium.

Vocology is a field that encompasses voice habilitation and rehabilitation, medical and performance knowledge, and new research across these areas. Contemporary symposia and focused courses disseminate this information across multiple voice disciplines and build connections across professions. The Pan American Vocology Symposium and regular course offerings fulfill this need.


As a result of this activity, participants will be able to…

  • Summarize basic vocal anatomy and physiology.
  • Summarize basic physics and acoustics of voice and how they are measured.
  • Describe the relationship between typical and atypical voice production and some ways in which it is measured and evaluated.
  • Summarize strategies and techniques for voice habilitation and rehabilitation.
  • Demonstrate various voice therapy and voice teaching techniques for a variety of voice use areas.
  • Describe recent clinical, scientific and technological advances related to the study of voice.
  • Describe interdisciplinary clinical and research information about voice production, evaluation and treatment.
  • Describe current issues in the professional voice community, also including ethics for singing teachers and voice rehabilitation.
