Audiologists

Job Description

Audiologists have studied the science of hearing. They study, diagnose and treat hearing loss and balance disorders. They identify hearing problems and help people improve their hearing. Audiologists conduct ear exams, train clients in speech and lip reading, and teach people how to use hearing aids or other devices.

Academic Requirements

Audiologist courses are typically found in graduate degree programs because this specialized profession requires the completion of a doctoral program in audiology. The most common degree available is the doctor of audiology (Au.D), although some doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) programs do exist for those who would rather do research than practice audiology in the health care industry.
