Upon completion of the Audiology program at Dalhousie University, students meet the requirements for application for certification by Speech-Language & Audiology Canada (SAC) and for licensure in any of the provinces with government regulation of audiology.
Audiologists are health care professionals concerned with the diagnosis, assessment, rehabilitation, and prevention of hearing loss and balance disorders.
More specifically, audiologists:
- perform hearing assessments to determine the degree and type of hearing loss
- administer diagnostic tests to determine the sources and causes of hearing disorder
- use state-of-the-art technology to evaluate and treat hearing loss in children and adults
- fit amplification systems such as hearing aids or cochlear implants
- screen the hearing of newborns
- provide aural rehabilitation to individuals with hearing loss and their families to reduce communication problems and facilitate adjustments to hearing loss
- prevent hearing loss by educating the public and other professionals about the effects of noise on hearing
Audiologists often work in collaboration with otolaryngologists, family physicians, nurses, teachers, social workers, psychologists, speech-language pathologists, and other audiologists.
Audiologists work in a variety of environments, including hospitals, community health centres, private clinics, schools, hearing aid manufacturers, and universities.
