National Center for Rehabilitative Auditory Research (NCRAR)
James Henry, Ph.D.
Dr. Henry earned an M.S. in Audiology from Portland State University in 1987, and a Ph.D. in Behavioral Neuroscience at Oregon Health & Science University in 1994. He has received continuous research funding since 1995 to study and develop methods to improve clinical procedures for the management of tinnitus.
Dr. Henry directs an integrated program of research, education, and professional training. His research focuses on developing tinnitus diagnostic tests, treatment options, and outcome measures, and bringing these into clinical practice. In addition, a significant portion of Dr. Henry’s duties involves education of Veteran patients and their families, education and training of clinicians, and professional mentoring.
Perhaps the most significant result of Dr. Henry’s efforts is the development of “Progressive Tinnitus Management” (PTM). PTM is a program of tinnitus management that involves five stepped levels of care to address patients at all levels of need. PTM has been endorsed by VA Central Office officials as the standard method of tinnitus management for VA medical centers nation-wide. Dr. Henry’s goals are to document the effectiveness of PTM for Veterans, and to make PTM available to all Veterans needing quality clinical services to assist them in managing their tinnitus.
