Short Biography

Dr. Larry Medwetsky is an Associate Professor in the AuD. program.  He has conducted much research  in the areas of spoken-language processing and access to hearing related health care.  Dr. Medwetsky has also served on a number of committees including the American Academy of Audiology task force for developing guidelines for audiologists in diagnosing and managing CAPD as well as the American Speech, Language, and Hearing Association's task force for examining SLP's role in diagnosing and managing CAPD.

Dr. Medwetsky has been a practicing audiologist since 1979.  His first professional experience was as an educational audiologist at Mackay Center in Montreal, Quebec for deaf, hard-of-hearing and physically handicapped children where he was employed  for five years.  While he was a Ph.D. student at the Graduate Center, City University of New York he served as a research assistant on research related to cochlear implants, tactile aids, and speechreading, and subsequently as a research associate where he conducted research related to hearing aids.  Prior to graduating with his Ph.D. from the Graduate Center of City New York, Dr. Medwetsky commenced employment at the Rochester Hearing and Speech Center in Rochester, NY where he ultimately served in a number of roles including Director of Audiology, Director of Quality Assurance and Corporate Compliance, and Vice-President of Clinical Services (overseeing both the audiology and speech-language pathology departments).

Dr. Medwetsky has a number of personal interests which he likes to pursue, including playing guitar, exercising, reading, and loves anything to do with meteorology and astronomy.  But most importantly, his interests lie with his family  including his wife Leslie who is a speech-language pathologist and his three sons-  Adam, Sam, and Ethan.
