It is not surprising that with the increasing number of ear buds and headphones being permanently attached to the ears of our youth, there would be an increased need for Audiologists to test the hearing capacity of children and teens.
Audiologists also work hand in hand with Hearing Aid Specialists to determine the level of hearing loss of patients requiring hearing aids and often work as part of a multi-faceted medical team at hospitals and clinics. The job involves operating complex audio equipment so a capacity for technology is required for this job.
