Here's the latest news for the Department of Otolaryngology.
The Department of Otolaryngology and Communicative Sciences congratulates our residents on their outstanding performance on the 2015 ABOto Inservice Exams. They have consistently scored in the top 10-20% of all residency programs in the nation, but this year, they are in the top 5 programs in the country, with only two programs scoring higher. The graph shows program averages and where our residents scored.
The 14th Annual Lectureship in Otolaryngology and Communicative Sciences and Resident Graduation was held June 26 and 27, 2015.
Dr. J. Dale Browne, professor and chairman of the Department of Otolaryngology at Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C., was our visiting professor. His specialty is head and neck surgical oncology and reconstruction.
Our department was well represented at the September Academy meetings in Orlando, Fla. Six residents and six faculty members participated in the different society meetings. Dr. Andrea Lewis presented a course, and Dr. Randall Jordan and Dr. Scott Stringer presented mini-seminars. Dr. Andrew Nida (PGY-4) had an oral presentation at the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy meeting. Alumni attendees included Drs. Mary Ashmead, Brad Byrne, Michael Goodier, Jim House, David Moore, Corbin Mullis and Tara Rosenberg.
Dr. Scott Stringer, professor and chairman of the Department of Otolaryngology and Communicative Sciences, has been elected secretary-treasurer of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. The academy is the world's largest organization representing specialists who treat the ear, nose, throat and related structures of the head and neck area. Representing about 12,000 otolaryngologists-head and neck surgeons, it works to advance ethical practice and excellent care through education, research and health policy advocacy.
Congratulations to Christy Sheppard, Kelli Howard and Nikki Forst who became Certified Otorhinolaryngology Nurses (CORLN) recently. They are the first nurses in our department to achieve this through the Society of Otorhinolaryngology and Head-Neck Nurses. The difficult 250-question certification test focuses on otorhinolaryngological conditions, head and neck conditions and nursing and professional issues. We appreciate their dedication to our patients and to nursing professionalism. They set the bar high for nursing expertise and care in our department.
