Head and Neck Simulation ProgramOtolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery Simulation Program

Residents encounter difficult and emergent airway situations throughout their training. Our Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery Simulation Program gives residents the opportunity to learn and practice new skills and procedures in nearly real situations without risk of injury to a patient. It is also provides an effective means of assessing competency. Training opportunities include the annual Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery Simulation Day. We hope to expand the program over the next few years.
