Audiology is the medical specialty that deals with hearing and balance disorders. Practitioners are known as audiologists.

Practicing audiologyEdit

Many Federation species will require of audiologists to hold a degree known as a Doctor of Audiology, abbreviated AuD. As with medical school, audiology programs can be entered either as undergraduates or as graduate students. Some audiology schools offered combined degrees with, for example, a Master of Public Health.

Lyrans considered the AuD degree as the license to practice audiology, in the same way a Doctor of Medicine degree authorizes one to practice medicine in Lyran territory. Lyran Starfleet had a shortage of audiologists so severe that not even hospital ships could have one and only some starbases could have one on duty.(Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "Express Delivery")
