Career opportunities

Audiologists are hearing health care professionals responsible for the assessment and management of individuals with hearing, communication and balance problems. They provide clinical services in hospitals, community health centres, hearing aid clinics, and in some medical practices.

Many audiologists are involved in research, helping to develop new behavioural and electrophysiological test techniques, cochlear implants, hearing aids and hearing health therapies. Some audiologists work in community and workplace settings including programs aimed at reducing the prevalence and impact of middle ear disease in rural and remote aboriginal communities, newborn hearing screening programs and hearing conservation programs in industry.
