Resident Operative Experience

Resident Operative Experience

Without a doubt, our program’s biggest strength is the operative experience. Our residents operate one-on-one with a faculty member on virtually every case, and our patient volume is outstanding. We take pride in providing trainees with the surgical skills necessary to become excellent otolaryngologists within the field of their choosing.
