We look forward to hosting visiting medical students for a one month visiting sub internship in Otolaryngology.

Visiting students have the opportunity to rotate through all of the subspecialties of Otolaryngology and broadly get to know a variety of faculty and residents in our department. Each student will give a brief presentation to the department at the end of the rotation as a way to showcase what they have learned. Students will participate in all formal didactic sessions and subspecialty-specific conferences such as tumor board, skull base conference and otology conference.

The subspecialty rotations include outpatient, inpatient and surgical experiences. Research opportunities may be available for highly motivated students. Additionally, each visiting student will be assigned a faculty mentor for this rotation. All applications are accepted through the AAMC's Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO).

We participate in the National Resident Matching Program and accept applications through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Please visit the ERAS website to complete your application for our program. We have no minimum USMLE score requirement and try to look at each applicant in a holistic manner. We are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion in the residency recruitment process.
