Mission and Goals
The mission of the Long Island Doctor of Audiology (AuD) Consortium of Adelphi, Hofstra and St. John’s Universities is to prepare students to be professional, knowledgeable, competent, and compassionate clinicians who are able to utilize evidence-based principles by integrating research methods and findings into their professional practice. Students will gain a strong appreciation for the connections between the scientific bases of the discipline and its clinical practices. It is our goal to produce highly skilled practitioners with the ability to perform the wide variety of diagnostic, remedial, and other critical services within the scope of practice for audiologists, while maintaining sensitivity to cultural and linguistic diversity.
