The Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, commonly referred to as ENT, is dedicated to the treatment of patients with medical and surgical diseases of the ears, nose, throat, head, neck and skull base.

The Department has three primary missions: Clinical Practice, Research and Education.

The clinical program is dedicated to a single mission -- providing outstanding care for patients with otorhinolaryngologic disease.

Our educational program is dedicated to training outstanding Otorhinolaryngologists, and providing all medical students with core knowledge of fundamental Otolaryngology principles and concepts. We take great pride in the accomplishments of our residents -- watching them grow from recent medical graduates to highly skilled practitioners.

We are committed to insuring that our trainees recognize and respect the importance of humanism in this age of technology -- caring for patients, not diseases.
