Audiologists identify and treat patients with hearing problems or disorders. Audiologists examine and diagnose patients and recommend treatment to be administered themselves or by their physician. Some audiologists also travel to schools to test children of various age levels to detect the early signs of hearing or balance disorders. Those who practice audiology are generally required to have a master's degree; however, there is higher demand for those with a doctoral Au.D. degree.
The job growth for audiologists is supposed to be consistent with the national average according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, as mentioned above, those with an Au.D. degree will have an advantage over other jobseekers.
