Audiology is a clinical science that involves hearing and balance assessment and rehabilitation. An audiologist is a healthcare professional who provides consultation and services for identification, assessment, and management of hearing, balance, and other auditory disorders for clients of all ages. 

To practice Audiology in Iran, one must possess a Bachelor's or a Master’s degree in Audiology and be registered with Medical Council of the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRIMC). Audiologists, who continue their education towards PhD, can work at universities or research institutes.
