Audiology is the science of hearing and balance and their associated disorders. It’s a varied and expanding discipline, involving aspects of biological sciences, engineering, psychology, physics and electronics, speech and language development and social science.
Audiologists are involved in diagnosis and rehabilitation of patients, allowing them to develop relationships with their patients and see the benefits they get from care. Audiologists must combine logical thinking and a scientific approach, with a caring and patient-focused attitude. They need to be able to communicate with people of all ages.
