Our program places high expectations on residents to pursue quality research. With such a large clinical faculty, there are plenty of opportunities for research in all subspecialties of ENT. Every year, residents produce publications in competitive journals and present either poster or oral presentations at the AAO-HNSF Academy conferences. Our residency has a competent and accessible research staff that can assist with every stage of projects. Our department offers financial incentives for oral and poster presentations at academy and other otolaryngology meetings. If you are a medical student and are interested in participating in current studies, please reach out to our residency coordinator, Emily Anderson, and she can help you get in touch with the resident in charge of an ongoing project.
