Phoniatrics in Austria

The medical specialty of phoniatrics and pedaudiology, a subspecialty of otorhinolaryngology, deals with etiology, diagnostics and therapy of disorders of the voice, pediatric hearing, perception, speech, language and swallowing from a clinical, scientific and educational point of view. It is a dynamic, functionally orientated discipline which closely cooperates with other medical and non-medical disciplines, e.g. pediatrics, neurology, maxillofacial surgery / orthodontics, radiology, logopedics / speech therapy, psychology, educational disciplines or vocal pedagogy.

In Austria the discipline of phoniatrics is scientifically represented by the phoniatric departments of the Medical Universities of Vienna, Graz and Innsbruck. Due to the active role of the Austrian Section of Phoniatrics in educational issues the section already has 42 members, working in hospitals or medical offices. 6 ENT specialists are in training for the phoniatric subspecialty.

Now, for more than 30 years, on the initiative of the Austrian Society of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, the Austrian Section of Phoniatrics has organized courses in phoniatrics in Salzburg (St. Virgil). Thereby all Austrian ENT residents become familiar with phoniatric topics. The numerous participants confirm the necessity of such educational activities. Furthermore, courses and symposia offer further training and active discussions.
