In addition to the aforementioned clinical trials, the University of Kentucky Department of Otolaryngology Residency Program believes that research is a key component of developing clinicians and lifelong inquisitiveness. Residents spend 2 months of their PGY-3 year on research block, and 1 month of their PGY-4 year. Residents are taught on research process and are expected to complete at least two projects of publishable quality by the end of residency. Most of our residents complete more than these minimums. Travel funds are provided for accepted presentations as regional and/or national meetings. More information can be found on our resident research page link above.
