In brief: Absolutely
Hearing loss does not have to limit your professional options.
If you're interested in audiology- go for it.

I know audiologists with varying levels of hearing loss and even those with cochlear implants for profound deafness.
I think it helps some deaf patients feel more comfortable to work with healthcare providers who have first-hand knowledge of deafness.
