What is an Audiologist ?
Audiologists are specialists who assess how people hear, and who use various technologies and therapies to help people with hearing and balance problems.
Audiologists are university graduates with extensive and ongoing postgraduate training in hearing sciences and human communication.
Audiologists are the only hearing health practitioners who provide services to people of all ages, from babies to older adults. Audiologists also provide advice to other practitioners and organisations about hearing care.
Audiology Australia is the national body that represents Audiologists and sets the Standards of Practice for Audiologists.
