If the future of audiology hinges on the passion, professionalism and perseverance of today’s Au.D. students, then the future will be bright indeed!
ADA student members established the Student Academy of Doctors of Audiology (SADA) to coordinate student educational programming, and identify and introduce resources that will help prepare today’s students to achieve ownership positions within the profession of audiology in the future.
