We are a multi-location audiology practice looking for a 4th-year AuD student. We work with infants through geriatrics providing diagnostics testing, hearing aid evaluations, hearing aid sales, cochlear implant management, and tinnitus treatment. Come join this amazingly growing practice in a unique Wyoming landscape where nature is as uncrowded as our highways.
Our practice has three (soon to be four) outgoing, charismatic, full-time Doctors of Audiology who are interested in working with a 4th-year student who wants to fully embrace diagnostics, hearing aid fittings and has an interest in understanding entrepreneurship and genuinely cares about learning how a business operates. We are committed to providing our patients with the highest level of service, while connecting with them in a meaningful and professional way.
The ideal candidate is enthusiastic, outgoing and team oriented. You should be ready to perform medically relevant diagnostics, including audiometry, immittance, DPOAEs as well as treatment focused evaluations that include speech-in-noise testing such as the ANL and QuickSIN and loudness discomfort levels. Must be passionate about working with hearing aid technology and desire to improve lives with hearing aid solutions. You will be expected to improve proficiency with hearing aid dispensing and ongoing hearing aid management with electroacoustic analysis and real ear measurements. We specialize in tinnitus evaluation and management where an extensive tinnitus test battery and solution-driven, holistic treatment management options need to be embraced.
4th year students would be placed in our Cheyenne clinic as a home base. They would travel with all the providers to our different locations working with each of our fabulous Doctors of Audiology.

Brant Audiology Associates came to be in August 2012 when Brant Christensen, AuD, of Brant Audiology and Ruby Zubrod, AuD, of Audiology and Tinnitus Center of Cheyenne joined their successful practices to become a better-rounded audiology office. This partnership allowed both doctors the ability to provide better care to their patients. With our team of two Doctors of Audiology, a 4th year Audiology Intern and several Audiology Assistants, we are the largest comprehensive audiology clinic in Wyoming and Western Nebraska. Even though we are the largest audiology clinic in this region, we pride ourselves in not losing the personal touch. Our 3 full-time offices (Cheyenne, Casper, Wyoming & Scottsbluff, Nebraska) and service centers in Torrington & Wheatland, Wyoming and Alliance, Chadron & Sidney, Nebraska)
