Department of Otorhinolaryngology


Resident Rotations

PGY-1 (General Surgery intern year)

The first year (PGY-1) is spent completing rotations in general surgery, neurosurgery, anesthesia, critical care, emergency medicine, and otorhinolaryngology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) and Pennsylvania Hospital (PAH). Three months are spent as the intern on the head and neck oncology service at HUP.  

PGY-2 to PGY-5 (Clinical otolaryngology)

The four years of clinical otolaryngology training (PGY-2 to PGY-5) consist of 14 three-month clinical rotations and one six-month research rotation at the PGY-4 level. The rotation schedule is designed to offer each resident an equivalent experience. Rotations take place at Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP), Pennsylvania Hospital (PAH), Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), the Philadelphia Veterans Medical Center (VAMC), and Penn Presbyterian Medical Center (PPMC).

Further, all aspects of adult and pediatric otolaryngology-head and neck surgery are taught and practiced so as to provide for a well-rounded program. Experience throughout the otolaryngology portion of the training program is progressive with increasing clinical and surgical responsibility. Each resident within the program has his or her final rotation at each institution in the capacity of chief resident of the service.
