Au.D. Consortium aims to prepare students to be professional, knowledgeable, competent, and compassionate clinicians who are able to utilize evidence-based practice by integrating research principles and findings into their professional practice. Students will gain a strong appreciation for the connections between the scientific bases of the discipline and its clinical practices. It is our goal to produce highly skilled practitioners with the ability to perform the wide variety of diagnostic, remedial, and other critical services within the scope of practice for audiologists, while maintaining sensitivity to cultural and linguistic diversity. Adelphi’s department of communication sciences and disorders, in cooperation with Hofstra and St. John’s Universities, offers a professional doctorate in Audiology (Au.D.). The primary objective of the program is to produce highly skilled practitioners who are competent to perform the wide variety of diagnostic, remedial, and other critical services within the scope of practice for audiologists.
