Becoming an Audiologist

What is an audiologist?

Working in audiology provides the opportunity to work with individuals of all ages, from infants to seniors. Audiologists have training and expertise in evaluating, diagnosing, and treating a wide range of hearing and balance disorders. We work in the public sector including health units, hospitals, and clinics and in the private sector.

The College of Health Disciplines at UBC has prepared information on all the healthcare professions to help prospective students choose a career.

The only audiology program in British Columbia is the School of Audiology and Speech Sciences (SASS) at the University of British Columbia (UBC), which offers a “solid academic foundation, valuable opportunities for practical experience, and a stunning location in which to study.”

Speech-Language and Audiology Canada provides a list of all the Canadian University Programs in Audiology.
