Stringer picked to lead otolaryngology groups
Dr. Scott Stringer, chairman of the otolaryngology and communicative sciences, assumed the presidency of the Association of Academic Departments of Otolaryngology (AADO) on Nov. 4.
Across the United States and Canada, the AADO represents and promotes the shared interests of academic institutions’ departments of otolaryngology, a specialty concerned with the ear, nose and throat (ENT). The organization’s past president-elect, Stringer will now serve a two-year term as president.
Stringer also was chosen president-elect of the Society of University Otolaryngologists-Head and Neck Surgeons (SUO-HNS) at the organization’s annual meeting in November. The SUO-HNS represents all faculty members in university otolaryngology programs nationwide. Its tasks include providing guidelines for resident education and blueprints for teaching medical students.
Stringer will ascend to the presidency in 2013.
