As a student in an audiology graduate or undergraduate program, you are well on your way to becoming an outstanding audiology professional. With all of the time you spend at school, it can be challenging to find ways to stand out to externship sites and future employers. The AudiologyNOW! convention, in Indianapolis, Indiana, April 5–8, 2017, is one great way to prepare for your future. AudiologyNOW! is the largest gathering of audiologists and has historically offered a variety of events for students and professionals looking to stay up to date with the newest research and technology.

For many students, the prospect of graduation can mean several things—the end of their tenure in academia, or perhaps the beginning of a fulfilling, lifelong career. If you ask me, I am looking forward to the focus on clinical service provision in contrast to meeting capstone deadlines, writing term papers, and studying for examinations. In reality, however, as a health-care professional, you have committed yourself to lifelong learning because audiology is a profession that is founded upon evidence-based practice.
