Get to Know a New Class of Audiologists

It is estimated that two to three of every 1,000 children in the United States are born with some degree of hearing loss and that more will acquire hearing loss later in childhood, according to the National Institutes of Health.

SAA SPOTLIGHT | Say the Word “Survey”: Inspiring Data-Driven Change for Audiology Externships

Since the creation of the AuD, many conversations have taken place to evaluate audiology education and the externship, but few of those have included large perspectives from significant stakeholders—students and recent graduates. To address this, the Student Academy of Audiology Education and Externship Survey was disseminated in September 2018 to current graduate students, externs, and new professionals to further investigate areas of strengths and weaknesses in the current education model and the externship process.

SAA SPOTLIGHT | Get On Our Level!

As members of the Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) Board, we often hear that one of the greatest challenges local SAA chapters and our student members face is incorporating advocacy into their daily and chapter activities. When students think about advocacy, it tends to be on a large scale. We envision pictures of students standing in front of the Capitol in Washington, DC. with their folders, clipboards, and leave-behinds.
