The purpose of the Au.D. program is to provide students with the academic and clinical preparation to diagnose and treat the full range of hearing and vestibular disorders in all age groups.
Our goal is to prepare audiologists who are competent to work effectively in a wide variety of clinical settings, including hospitals, clinics, special treatment centers, schools, industry, and private practice. Graduates of the program must demonstrate acquisition of all knowledge and skills delineated in the Standards for the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology (CCC-A).
The doctoral program in audiology at West Virginia University is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard, #310, Rockville, MD 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700.
