Academic Education (AE)
Instructional Level: Fundamental
As national conversation has shifted toward the future of the profession of audiology, it becomes increasingly important to understand how the education and preparation of audiologists shapes that future. This year, the Student Academy of Audiology conducted a survey of more than 1,000 current students, externs, and new professionals. This survey included questions on current audiology education, the externship process, and how they both prepare students for a changing professional landscape and scope of practice.
