Clinical Hearing Services for Soldiers

Determine auditory fitness-for-duty by determining the degree and cause of hearing loss and measuring a Soldier’s hearing ability against a performance or medical standard.

Clinical hearing services are performed for noise-exposed DoD Civilians as part of the Army Hearing Conservation Program.
