Abstract

Audiology is a constantly evolving profession and far removed from the days of the traditional clinical work setting. Public health, private clinics and product manufacturers are among many work-place options possible for today’s audiologists. Even within those settings, further specialization is possible and often required as the demands of the role advance with technological advancements. This session will be hosted by audiologists representing those three large divisions of the profession, with each clinician sharing insight into the unique challenges of their own occupational environments. The presentation will provide an overview of shared skills sets and will look to define what determines a successful audiologist for each respective work environment of the presenters. 

Learning Objectives:

1) Gaining a better understanding of the specific nature of the audiologist within a chosen workplace.
2) Refining your skill set for obtaining employment following completion of their Master’s degree.

 

This webinar is eligible for SAC CEEs (Category A).
