Welcome to the Department of Audiology at the VCU Medical Center. Think only older people have hearing loss? In fact, more than half of all people with hearing difficulties are under the age of 65.

1 to 4 of every 1000 babies born in the U.S. has some form of hearing loss. Hearing is critical to speech and language development, communication, learning, and social development.

The VCU Audiology department provides comprehensive hearing services to patients of all ages, including hearing testing, hearing aid dispensing and cochlear implant services. Please follow the links at left to explore the services we offer.
