Audiologists specialise in the assessment, diagnosis, and management of hearing defects and ear-related disorders. They conduct hearing tests, assess auditory conditions, and provide advice and services which prevent, manage and rehabilitate hearing loss. They prescribe, fit and repair hearing aids and other devices. They can identify more complex conditions which require referral for further treatment and care. They can measure and advise on safe noise levels in the workplace. Audiologists work in hospital departments, private and community clinics and education settings. To pursue a career in this field, Audiologists complete 5 years of university study, including a master's degree and internship.
