An Audiologist is the professional who has at least a Master’s level University degree in Audiology. They have received extensive training in anatomy and physiology of the ear.
Did you know that our ear doesn’t just collect the sounds around us, but it is a rather complicated system which starts at the ear and follows all the way to the brain and this is what allows us to actually “hear”? If someone is having difficulty hearing, even only certain sounds, there could be many causes for the hearing loss. An Audiologist has specialized training to rule out treatable medical conditions and make appropriate recommendations. If hearing aids are required, their advanced training in how we hear can help them determine the best solution and tailor it to the individual.
