Audiology Learning Experience (ALE) at Salus

Audiology is one of the fastest growing professions in the United States. Salus University originally established the Audiology Learning Experience (ALE) in 2017 based on the success of the Optometry Learning Experience (OLE), established in 1979, to offer interested undergraduate students the opportunity to gain insight into the academics involved in the Doctor of Audiology program and in a career in the audiology profession.

During the one to two-day summer program, participants meet with Audiology faculty members for a round table discussion; observe clinical skills demonstrations in the program‘s clinical labs; sit in on a class; and learn about the University’s admissions process and career trajectories for those who earn a Doctor of Audiology degree. They also tour the University and the Pennsylvania Ear Institute (PEI), the Osborne College of Audiology’s clinical teaching facility.

The goal of the ALE program is to open students’ minds to the possibilities of an education and career in audiology, along with teaching and research opportunities in the profession.
