Applied Hearing Solutions is looking for a motivated AuD extern to join our team. Established in 2017 in Anthem Arizona, Dr. Cliff Olson operated the clinic as the only provider with no support staff. Now, Applied Hearing Solutions is a 2-provider clinic with 4 support staff and growing due to the demand for high-quality hearing care spurred by the Dr. Cliff AuD YouTube channel. Applied Hearing Solutions specializes in Best Practices for Adult Audiologic management.
We are seeking an extern who is looking to advance their knowledge and skills in Adult diagnostics and hearing aid treatment while following Best Practices. The ideal candidate should be passionate about Best Practice care, enthusiastic, a team-player, committed to self-improvement, and willing to contribute to content creation (including audio, video, and written content). The candidate must be able to communicate effectively with patients and staff members from diverse backgrounds.
We are a family-owned clinic focused on creating a fantastic work environment to foster team camaraderie and an excellent patient experience. Our newly relocated clinic on the north side of Phoenix Arizona, is easily accessible from anywhere in the greater Phoenix area. Phoenix is excellent for individuals who love the outdoors, want the amenities of a larger city, and is a great place for a family.
