The American Academy of Audiology is conducting a large-scale national survey to gather data on the characteristics and activities of audiologists.
The evidence gathered from this survey will help provide an accurate description of audiology practice. This survey is for general audiology practice, and individuals who are engaged specifically in clinical practice as a pediatric audiologist should complete a separate pediatric survey being offered through the American Board of Audiology.
The survey takes approximately 30–45 minutes to complete.
Participants will complete demographic questions and also rate the importance and frequency of activities performed by audiologists. Individuals who complete the survey may provide their contact information to enter a drawing to win one of several prizes ($25 gift cards, $50 gift cards, and complimentary full registration to AAA 2023+HearTECH Expo).

Completion deadline is June 13.
