Right now there are two AuD programs in the nation that are up and
Baylor College Of Medicine in Houston TX.
Central Michigan University
They are slightly different in that the BCM is based out of the medical
school and CMU is in the graduate school. With your background
It would probably be best to apply for the AuD programs because
it will become the entry level degree within the next 10 years.
With your chemsitry background it would seem to put you
in a good position to take the AuD classes at the med school.
Otherwise if you get a masters you will have to wait, probably to
get your AuD because there is not a mechanism that is in place or
that is agreed upon, on how all of the masters level practicioners
will earn the AuD without quitting a job and going back to
email me personally if you want some info on the two programs.
Thank you for your support,
