Learning Groups

The hallmark of the University of Florida program is our ability to unite audiologists from around the country in discussions about topics central to our profession. Each student is part of a community of audiologists. These Learning Groups facilitate student participation in the nation’s premier Au.D. program.

Learning Groups allow students regardless of geographic location to:
