    Hey AuDs! Im currently a DPT student and I was tasked with learning more about your profession, how AuDs interact with PTs, any conditions we tend to refer to you or the other way around, any patients we tend to co-treat? Any info you can provide as well as any sources about the subject would be great!

    Thanks!

    Vestibular PT's and diagnostic audiologists work hand in hand. While DPT's are mainly doing rehabilitation and therapy (of course), audiologists are at the front of the diagnostic tests. I worked with a PT at an ENT practice and we co-managed many cases together.
