Medical Student Education


Roadmap to Residency 


M2 Lectures: 

Every fall the department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck surgery presents lectures to the second year medical students.  After the lectures have been given, the students break out into small groups with the residents. Examples of topics that will be presented include an overview of head and neck cancer, surgical aspects of thyroid cancer, hoarseness, dizziness & vertigo, ear disease, and surgical treatment of sleep apnea and rhinosinusitis.

M3 Surgical Rotation: 

Third year medical students may elect to spend one or two weeks in ENT. Each student is assigned to a resident.

M4 Otolaryngology Clerkship:

Fourth-year medical students may elect to spend an entire four-week period in otolaryngology, participating in medical and surgical activities, patient care and, if desired, research projects.
