The goal of the Audiology Foundation of America is to transform audiology into a healthcare profession with the Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) as the first professional degree. The AFA empowers audiologists to be independent and autonomous practitioners by supporting their educational preparation, professional practice and leadership development.
Audiology is recognized as an independent and autonomous profession. Audiologists are the leaders in the preservation, diagnosis, management and treatment of the hearing and balance functions. AFA excels in organizing the people, money and programs to champion this transformation of the profession.
