What is a Doctor of Audiology?

To be an audiologist in Oregon, a person must have either a Master’s or Doctoral degree from an accredited university graduate program in audiology.

An audiologist must complete many hours of practicums and a fellowship year of training before being certified. A hearing instrument specialist in Oregon must have at least a high school diploma or GED, and a total of 160 hours of training in theory as well as practical, supervised training.
