Program Objectives

Our primary goal is to prepare exemplary clinicians who are qualified to practice patient-focused, evidence-based audiology in a wide variety of settings.

Because our academic program is located in the UNC School of Medicine with close ties to UNC Hospitals, we have unique strengths in the areas of pediatric and lifespan audiology, diagnostics, hearing aids, cochlear implants, balance, and aural habilitation. The nationally ranked and highly respected AuD program at UNC develops clinical excellence in both the technical and interpersonal domains.
