Anesthesiologist assistants (AAs) are highly educated allied health professionals who work under the direction of an anesthesiologist to help implement the anesthetic plan as prescribed by the anesthesiologist. AAs are trained through master’s degree professional programs in the delivery and maintenance of quality anesthesia care as well as advanced patient monitoring techniques. AAs can be thought of as similar to physician assistants, except that they work exclusively with anesthesiologists and practicing independently or in a primary care setting is NOT included in the AAs scope of practice. AAs usually practice in a hospital setting that uses an Anesthesia Care Team approach and are always supervised by anesthesiologists.

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.
