Looked like there have not been any info posted in SDN in a long time about becoming a military audiologist. Figured I would make a thread for those interested and help answer some questions. There are three ways to come in as an audiologist in the army. Feel free to send me questions, I only represent the army so please no questions about other branches. #1 right out of school-Audiology Externship Program (AEP) AEP provides a 1-year clinical audiology externship to students who have completed all academic coursework for their clinical doctorate in audiology and are eligible for the 1-year program. Training is conducted at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, Maryland. Applicants incur a 36-month ADO following completion of the externship. This is a one-time-a-year board meeting in October of each year. Also will receive 120K in student loan repayment. Will make full salary of around 80K while in externship. #2- Already have experience and want to join full time- 3 year contract to join as a captain. 120K in student loan repayment. Will be making around 80K a year starting. #3- Already have experience and want to join army reserves- drill one weekend a month and two weeks a year in your local unit. Up to 50K in student loan repayment, up to 80K in bonuses (20K per year). Still come in as captain.
