Gallaudet University was among the first universities to address the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association mandate to universities to convert the entry level clinical audiology degree from a master's degree to a clinical doctoral (AuD) degree. The Gallaudet AuD program was approved in 1998 and graduated its first AuD class in 2002. The purpose of this article is to describe the Gallaudet AuD program, the process of converting from a master's program to an AuD program, the impact of converting the program, and current challenges. It is hoped that this description will be useful to those who are currently developing AuD programs.
