“What is an Audiologist?
When patients suffer from any type of hearing troubles such as hearing loss, tinnitus, vertigo, or balance disorders, they are usually referred to an audiologist. These highly respected specialists focus on any type of hearing problems diagnosed in patients of all ages. And, a startling statistic is that one in every five people over the age of 12 suffers from some type of hearing loss. Audiologists must have busy offices.
How to Become an Audiologist
- Get your high school diploma or GED.
- Earn a bachelor’s degree. Any field is fine.
- Earn your doctorate in audiology (Au.D.). It will take 4 years
- Every state requires licensing, but the requirements are all different.
- Certification is required in some states, but it’s also recommended for all since it’s a hiring preference.
Make sure the program you chose to attend is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation; otherwise, you won’t be able to get that license, making all those years of higher education useless.
