What is an audiologist?
Audiology is a highly recognized profession that deals with the diagnosis and rehabilitation of hearing loss in babies, children or adults. An audiologist is a hearing healthcare professional that specializes in the evaluation, diagnosis, treatment and maintenance of hearing loss. Although most audiologists earn a doctor of audiology (AuD) degree, they can also obtain other degrees, including their PhD, ScD, etc. They must get their degree, however, from accredited Universities and an internship and competency exam must be completed prior to obtaining their degree.
Fortunately for audiologists, they don’t have to work in one designated facility. They can work in clinics, hospitals, ENT offices, private practices, universities, government and military facilities, etc. They are also frequently seen working with other medical specialists including: educators, speech-language pathologists, researchers and other health professionals in the same facility.
