What is the SAA?
The Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) is the national student organization of the American Academy of Audiology.
The primary goal of the SAA is to provide students with opportunities for information, resources, leadership, mentorship, and student-to-student networking as they progress through their educational programs and transition to professional status.
What is NOAC?
NOAC stands for the Northeast Ohio Au.D consortium. It is the joint Doctorate of Audiology program of The University of Akron and Kent State University, in affiliation with the Cleveland Clinic. Audiologists are hearing care specialists who provide evaluation and treatment for individuals with hearing impairments.
The University of Akron and Kent State University are nationally recognized for their strong audiology programs and are ideally suited to offer a collaborative professional doctorate. The Cleveland Clinic Foundation is internationally recognized as providing excellent health care. The collaborative nature of the Au.D. program merges the assets of these two strong audiology programs and the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. The structure of our Au.D. program results in optimal use of the schools' resources and the abundance of clinical training opportunities available at the Cleveland Clinic. Research opportunities are available at both universities and at the Cleveland Clinic.
