Student Academy of Audiology

Student Academy of Audiology The Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) is the student group associated with the American Academy of A
(20)

The SAA was founded in 2009 after NAFDA (National Association of Future Doctors of Audiology) approached the AAA for support. Various professional healthcare organizations have affiliated student institutions, such as the American Medical Association-Medical Student Section (AMA-MSS) as well as the American Psychological Association (APA), the American Dental Association (ADA), the American Nurses

Association (ANA), and the American Veterinary Association (AVA). All have student sections that work together with the parent organization to achieve common goals. In October 2008, Dr. Brian Vesely, the former NAFDA President, and Dr. Patrick Feeney, the former AAA President, signed an agreement that merged NAFDA into the AAA’s student organization, the Student Academy of Audiology (SAA). The ultimate goal of the merger was to maintain an independent student voice, while maximizing the opportunities that come with joining the AAA. The Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) is the national student division of the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) that serves as a collective voice for students and advances the rights, interests, and welfare of students pursuing careers in audiology. The SAA introduces students to lifelong involvement in activities that promote and advance the profession of audiology and provides services, information, education, representation, and advocacy for both the profession and consumers of audiology services. The SAA has over 2,000 members, consisting of students enrolled in AuD, PhD, post-baccalaureate, undergraduate, or other accredited audiology doctoral programs for a professional degree in audiology. The Student Academy of Audiology page is designed to be an interactive forum for students. Discussions and postings are subject to the Academy’s Antitrust Policy and Guidelines . Violations regarding antitrust https://www.audiology.org/antitrust-policy-and-guidelines/ on the Academy’s social media sites risk the Academy's non-profit tax status and could lead to litigation against the Academy and/or its members. Therefore, the Academy may monitor the site and remove any discussion or post that is deemed as a violation. The Academy asks our followers to not post any negative, offensive, denigrating, and/or completely out of context content, pictures, or videos. All posts by followers can be removed based upon the discretion of Academy Board of Directors and staff.
