Salus University’s recent commencement at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia included the inaugural class of 13 graduates from the Doctor of Audiology bridge program—an online program designed specifically for midcareer practitioners to enhance each graduate’s knowledge of recent advances in hearing science, diagnostic and rehabilitative technologies in audiology.
Of the 13 international students who graduated from the Doctor of Audiology bridge program, five traveled to Philadelphia to take part in commencement, traveling from New Zealand, Canada and Zambia. They joined the 23 graduates of the four-year residential AuD degree program.
