    Objectives

    The objectives for the residency program are to provide the trainee with a strong background in basic and clinical sciences related to otolaryngology, to assist the resident in the development of clinical and surgical expertise, and to give the trainee the opportunity to learn and practice research skills.

    Clinical care

    Residents are responsible for care of patients on the inpatient floors and in the clinics. All residents are expected to see patients in the clinic along with the attending faculty. Residents also are responsible for seeing emergency room consults. Residents are actively involved in the teaching of medical students who rotate with us in both the third and fourth years.

    Call schedule

    Junior residents will on average take primary call from home, which may range from every fourth weekday and every fourth weekend to every sixth weekday and sixth weekend. This number will vary with any residents out on vacation or leave.
