Job Description for Dispensing Audiologist

The ear is a tool vital for experiencing the whole range of sensory input, and all people (and most animals) rely on both ears to sense movement, ambient changes, vocal communication, music, and many other things. Maintaining hearing is extremely important, and the audiologist is the individual who does this in a non-medical capacity. They are tasked with assessing the quality of a person's hearing and balance and, after diagnosing any problems, formulating a rehabilitation program, which may include speech reading, auditory therapy, and hearing assistance devices. While this is the duty of regular audiologists, dispensing audiologists are those who are also certified to issue and fit such devices.


Dispensing Audiologist Tasks

  • Evaluate hearing and speech/language disorders to determine diagnoses and courses of treatment.
  • Document the initial evaluation, treatment, progress and discharge of patients.
  • Counsel and instruct patients in techniques to improve hearing or speech impairment, including sign language or lip-reading.
  • Fit and dispense assistive devices, such as hearing aids.
  • Plan, conduct and monitor treatment programs, recommend assistive devices according to patients' nature of impairment.
