Audiologists provide a wide range of assessment, habilitative, and rehabilitative services to individuals of all ages who are at risk for hearing impairment. They use special tests and protocols to evaluate hearing abilities and to assess the impact of hearing problems on communication.

Western's Master of Clinical Science (MClSc) program in audiology is a world leader in the field and has pioneered the development of technology for paediatric audiology. Students recieve personal attention through small group laboratory experiences and teaching clinics, low student-faculty ratios, and access to the school's state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities. The School of Communication Sciences and Disorders is home to Canada's largest on-site speech and hearing clinic, the H.A. Leeper Speech and Hearing Clinic. The MClSc program in audiology is designed to deliver a comprehensive, professional education focused on the development of clinical excellence, critical thinking, and problem solving necessary for practice as a clinical investigator.
