Degree in Audiology

Audiologists perform their duties in the areas of prevention, diagnosis and rehabilitation, as well as in academic teaching and scientific research.

On the level of Prevention, the Audiology professional is responsible for planning and conducting awareness-raising activities and screening programmes designed to prevent hearing loss. To that effect, he can intervene within industrial communities, schools, high-risk groups and the general population.

In the domain of the Diagnosis, the audiologist prepares, executes and interprets complementary examinations of functional and electrophysiological exploration, in order to identify, quantify and qualify dysfunctions in the audio-vestibular system and facial nerve.

In what concerns to Rehabilitation, he takes part (often integrated in multidisciplinary teams) in the study, development and execution of audio and vestibular rehabilitation programmes. He chooses the most adequate technical solutions (prosthesis) and renders the respective audioprosthetic and audiologic follow-up (audio rehabilitation), planning and executing actions that ensure the system?s improvement.

In teaching, he is responsible for training undergraduate and postgraduate students to the practice of the profession, as well as other professionals who might become interested in audiology.

Finally, in the field of scientific research, he organizes and conducts research projects in order to develop new techniques or to improve the existing ones.

Audiology is an area in exponential growth, due to technological advances in diagnostic and rehabilitation equipment, scientific knowledge about the auditory system and how the human being processes sound and also how he maintains balance. The practice of the profession of Audiologist necessarily implies qualifications such as the Degree in Audiology, or legally equivalent, as defined in Decree-Law 320/99 of August 11 Article 4. The audiologist works in public and private entities providing health care (public and private hospitals, health centers, ENT clinics, audiology centers, hearing aid and auditory rehabilitation), in educational institutions and manufacturing entities, integrated in teams of school medicine and work. It also develops research and teaching activities, both in the workplace and in higher education institutions. It is considered by several international websites and magazines as one of the 5 professions of the future.
