OLD BUSINESS

 

Audioprosthologist

Chairman Seitz reported that the search to date has produced no specific definition of the term “audioprosthologist”. He did find the scope of practice is “hearing aid dispensing and fitting.” Chairman Seitz will continue to search for a clear definition, and Dr. Mecier will attempt to contact schools that award certificates. They will update their findings at the next meeting.
