Why Your Hearing Professional
Should Be An Audiologist

What is an Audiologist?
Audiologists provide services and procedures for lessening or compensating for hearing impairment. Various approaches involve auditory training, speech reading and helping to improve listening skills with assistive devices.

Audiologists have special training in the prevention, diagnosis and non-medical treatment of hearing disorders. Qualifications include: a master’s or doctoral degree from an accredited university, state licensure, completion of a full-time internship and passing a demanding competency examination. These professionals belong to several national organizations guided by a Code of Ethics requiring that audiologic services must be provided in an ethical manner.

Isn’t Anyone Who Sells a Hearing Aid an Audiologist?
NO! Audiologists hold a masters degree or a PhD 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 perform hearing screenings, refer patients for medical treatment and provide hearing rehabilitation services. Don’t let anyone but an audiologist touch your ears.
