Army Hearing Program

The Army Hearing Program is here to help prevent Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) in Soldiers and to ensure their maximum combat effectiveness. Hearing is a critical sensor used by Soldiers that increases their survivability and lethality. When hearing loss is present, the ability to conduct auditory tasks is greatly diminished. Good hearing is required to perform such tasks as localizing sound, gauging auditory distance, identifying a sound source, and understanding verbal orders and radio communications. This multidimensional sense provides an indispensable amount of information on the battlefield. Good hearing can mean the difference between life and death in combat, as well as in training.

The goal of the Army Hearing Program Clinic is to provide assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and education of the full spectrum of audiology issues to maintain compliance with military and civilian regulatory agencies.
