Audiologists examine individuals of all ages and identify those with the symptoms of hearing loss and other auditory, balance, and related sensory and neural disorders. They then assess the nature and extent of the dysfunction and assist patients in the treatment and management of their disorder. Audiologists earn the Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) degree, as this is the entry level degree for clinical practice.
