The statement provides American Academy of Audiology guidance for audiologists with doctoral degrees in audiology or a directly relevant area on how to refer to themselves in printed media such as on business cards, in letterhead, and in advertisements.
Members are advised to check applicable state laws, including licensure laws, before referring to themselves in writing in another manner or using other terminology, such as Dr. Doe, without further designation of degree.
Whether serving on a clinical document development panel or participating as peer reviewers, volunteers have regular chances to deepen their engagement with the Academy and make important contributions benefiting the field of audiology. If you are interested in clinical document development, please volunteer to express interest and submit a CV to the Academy’s guidelines staff by email.
To view the list of guidelines and strategic documents in development and to learn more about the Academy’s clinical document development process, visit the Academy’s Practice Resources website. Information from interested members is accepted on an ongoing basis, and members will be contacted as clinical document volunteer openings occur.
