Our program has a rich history with the first Professorship of Otology dating back to 1872. Our first full-time chair, Dr. George Reed, took his position in 1964. Since then, many faculty and residents have come through our program. We provide strong clinical training in all subspecialties of otolaryngology. We take three residents per year. Approximately half of our residents go on to fellowship training and usually match in their top choices. We also have a 1 year fellowship in craniomaxillofacial surgery. We encourage you to take a look around our site. Good luck with your search for a training program.
