What is an Audiologist?
Audiologists are the only professionals who are university trained and licensed to identify, evaluate, diagnose, and treat audiologic disorders of hearing. PAA members are licensed to practice audiology within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. You can count on us for all of the solutions to your hearing problems. Read More
As a longtime member of PAA, I have found it to be the only organization in Pennsylvania that covers the needs of audiologists.
We have members working on legislation to benefit and improve our standing within the Commonwealth. We have members that help reach out to students and organizations related to our field. We have members who plan outstanding conferences meant to appeal to audiologists in a variety of clinical settings. The conferences have given me the opportunity for me to network with others and I have learned so much. Even though I have been practicing for 30 years, I still learn something new every day.
