Hearing Doctor Minnesota
The branch of science which deals with hearing is called Audiology. And, as it turns out, a “hearing doctor” is technically a Doctor of Audiology. But not every audiologist is also a Doctor of Audiology.
An audiologist is a licensed healthcare professional who specializes in diagnosing and treating hearing, balance, and tinnitus disorders. Many of these professionals hold at least a master’s degree. They then go on to earn their Doctorate of Audiology (Au.D.), which makes them officially recognized as doctors by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA).
In order to become an audiologist, you need at least a master’s degree in Audiology. This is required because hearing and balance disorders are extremely important issues that affect many people every day. However, if that isn’t enough for you, there’s always the option of getting your Ph.D in Audiology.
