A Message from the Chair

Dr. Scott Stringer

Welcome to the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. We are proud of what we have accomplished in the first two decades of our life as a department.

One of the tenets of our department is constant improvement in the pursuit of excellence. Our entire faculty, staff, and trainee group work together to successfully balance the goal of excelling in patient care, education, and discovery. Every day we challenge ourselves to be better than we were yesterday in some meaningful way. This results in outstanding customer service for our patients and colleagues, supportive and effective educational programs, and an advancement of new information and ideas. This has created an environment in which our team members feel purpose in what they do every day—improving the lives of others. An environment wherein we value input and new ideas, and where support for each other is evident.

Our faculty is comprised of over 50 otolaryngologists, audiologists, speech-language pathologists and researchers with interest in several fields. Each of us is committed to the common goals of educating the next generation of health care professionals and providing compassionate, quality care.

Central to all that we do are our vision and core values.
