Fellowship & Grant Programs

The Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery is committed to outstanding clinical care, the education of future leaders in our specialty and to advancing knowledge through basic and clinical research. Leading edge clinical care will be provided in a compassionate, patient friendly environment in which the patient always has priority.

The Department is resolved to provide a broad based clinical experience to enable residents to become leading clinicians, research opportunities for the development of future clinician/scientists, and medical student courses which both provide basic knowledge in the specialty and kindle the quest for future knowledge of the field. The Department recognizes that the future of otolaryngology is based upon the continued development of innovative research.

The Faculty has a special obligation to be a major national and international force in the development and implementation of advances in our specialty and to both avail itself of, and augment, the research resources available at the medical center. Recruitment and retention of outstanding faculty through maintenance of a collegial, stimulating and progressive academic milieu is critical to our mission.
