Course Description

Physicians and audiologists use many terms and abbreviations in describing hearing test results and hearing problems. Learning the new words is like learning a new language. This course introduces you to some of the terminology that you will use in reviewing medical records for patients, in testing hearing, and in talking with physicians, audiologists, technicians, and patients about hearing test results. The information in this course will help you as you take other courses in the hearing technician program.
