Who We Are
The UNC Hearing and Communication Center is a non-profit, nationally recognized audiology faculty practice, committed to providing the highest quality hearing care.
What Sets Us Apart
The UNC Hearing and Communication Center (HCC) provides comprehensive and compassionate hearing health care to the Triangle and beyond. Our faculty audiologists use the latest American Academy of Audiology recommended procedures to diagnose and treat hearing loss. These research-based techniques are utilized to ensure complete patient satisfaction and to provide optimal benefit of their technology. Our services cover a wide range of hearing health care, including comprehensive hearing evaluations, hearing aid selections and fittings, and aural rehabilitation. Our entire staff strives to make the experience as personal and efficient as possible.
Student Clinical Training
Since 1969, the UNC HCC has not only provided care to the community, but it has also served as a training facility to students in the Doctor of Audiology program at UNC-Chapel Hill. Each student has a clinical placement at the HCC during their training program. Our board-certified audiologists provide hands-on clinical opportunities while illustrating nationally recommended protocols.
Our nationally recognized, itemized (unbundled) model sets us apart from other clinics. Hearing aids and assistive devices can be a large investment. Separating the cost of hearing devices from the cost of professional services makes hearing care more affordable and accessible. To learn more about itemization (unbundling), click here.
