Salus University has announced that it recently held a commencement ceremony at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia that included the inaugural class of 13 graduates from the Doctor of Audiology Bridge Program—an online program designed specifically for mid-career practitioners to enhance their knowledge of recent advances in hearing science, diagnostic, and rehabilitative technologies in audiology.

Of the 13 international students who graduated from the most recent Doctor of Audiology Bridge Program, five traveled to Philadelphia to take part in commencement. The graduates who participated in the ceremony traveled from New Zealand, Canada, and Zambia. They joined the 23 graduates of the four-year residential AuD degree program.
