  • Evaluate patients regularly to check on hearing
    and balance and to continue or change the
    treatment plan
  • Record patient progress
  • Research the causes and treatment of hearing and
    balance disorders
  • Educate patients on ways to prevent hearing loss

Careers in Audiology
  • Audiologists are experts in providing services in
    the prevention, diagnosis, and evidenced-based
    treatment of hearing and balance disorders for
    people of all ages. Hearing and balance disorders
    are complex with medical, psychological,
    physical, social, educational, and employment
    implications. Audiologists provide professional
    and personalized services to minimize the
    negative impact of these disorders, leading to

    graduate program that typically takes 4 years to
    complete. A bachelors degree in any field is
    needed to enter one of these programs.
  • Graduate coursework includes anatomy, physiology,
    physics, genetics, normal and abnormal
    communication development, diagnosis and
    treatment, pharmacology, and ethics. Programs
    also include supervised clinical practice.
    Graduation from a program accredited by the
    Council on Academic Accreditation is required to
    get a license in most states
