Audiology is the healthcare science of hearing loss, tinnitus and balance disorders. Audiologists work closely with affected people of all ages and their families to enable them to overcome the barriers posed by such conditions, through use of science, state-of-the-art technology, and rehabilitation techniques. Audiologists are autonomous professionals, responsible for their own caseloads. They also participate as members of a multidisciplinary team, playing an important role in the evaluation, diagnosis and management of a diverse range of conditions.
Audiology is an exciting, challenging and rewarding profession, giving you the opportunity to combine a passion for science with strong communication and problem-solving skills to really make a difference to the quality of people’s lives.
