The Department has a strong basic and clinical research program focusing on many of the emerging frontiers of otolaryngology. Laryngeal implants, neurolaryngology, laser surgery, otoacoustic emissions, vestibular disorders, head and neck cancer, sleeping disorders, and outcomes are just a few of the critical areas in which we are conducting important research.
The Department has developed one of the most competitive otolaryngology residency programs in the United States. As one of the nation’s top ten otolaryngology residency programs, the department attracts the most highly qualified residents coming from many of the country’s top medical schools. The residency program receives over 300 applications for four positions each year.
Twelve computer-based research laboratories, a nationally-ranked graduate training program, and an ongoing continuing education program provide a solid base of new knowledge for this department’s broad range of patient care clinics.
