What Is an Audiologist, and What Can They Do?


Getting to know your hearing care provider

Many people have the same question, “what is an audiologist and what can they do?”

Audiologists are primary health care professionals who earn a Doctor of Audiology (AuD). Audiologists must be licensed in most states and work in a variety of settings (i.e. hospitals, universities, ENT offices, etc.).

Some of the tasks of an audiologist are prescribing and fitting hearing aids, assisting in cochlear implant programs, performing ear or hearing-related surgical monitoring and provide hearing rehabilitation such as auditory training, speech reading and listening to skills improvement. Almost all types of hearing loss are treatable by an audiologist and most are caused by nerve damage that can be treated with hearing aids, assistive listening devices and hearing rehabilitation.
