What does an audiologist do?
An audiologist is one of the most important people when it comes to your hearing health. They are highly qualified clinicians who evaluate, diagnose, treat and manage hearing loss and tinnitus.
They help people at all stages of life, from newborns through to seniors, though some may specialise in certain areas. Their role incorporates conducting hearing assessments, hearing aid prescription, fitting and management of hearing aids as well as rehabilitation and evaluation of more complex hearing concerns.
Audiologists have an undergraduate university degree as well as a two-year master’s degree in audiology. To keep up with continual advances and research in hearing sciences and human communications, their training is on-going throughout their whole career.
So, in essence an audiologist is a good person to speak to about any questions or concerns you may have around hearing health.
