The Past, Present, and Future of Audiology as the Provider of USA Hearing Healthcare
Victor Bray, MSC, PhD, FNAP & Amyn M. Amlani, PhD
The profession of audiology is at a critical crossroads in its evolution. The US population that could benefit from audiological services and treatment is expected to increase markedly over the next three decades, yet the number of audiologists available to provide services is not expected to increase. In this presentation, we assess the disparity between demand for services and the supply of available providers using various economic and public health models. The aim of this presentation is to provide audiologists a perspective of those factors that lend to the profession’s footprint within the healthcare arena, and other factors that may limit, or possible extinguish, our professional identity.
Full Registration Includes: Sessions for two days, all meals and receptions.
One Day Registration Includes: Sessions for one day, meals and Thursday's Cocktail Reception & Trivia Bowl.
Scholarships are available for students on a first come, first serve basis.
