What is an Audiologist?
An Audiologist specializes
in evaluating and treating people with hearing loss.
Audiologists earn doctoral degrees from accredited universities with special training in the prevention, identification, assessment and non-medical treatment of hearing disorders.
Audiologists are required to complete a full-time internship and pass a demanding national competency examination. By virtue of their graduate education, professional certification and licensure, audiologists are the most qualified professionals to provide competent, caring hearing aid evaluations, counseling and fittings.
