Research Opportunities

Residents in the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery are required to engage in mentored research training throughout the residency period. To support this requirement, residents spend six months doing research during the PGY-4 year. One resident each year pursues an extended 18-month research rotation beginning during the PGY-3 year, through our NIH-supported Advanced Research Training in Otolaryngology Program.

A wide range of ongoing basic science, clinical and translational research opportunities are available, as well as opportunities to develop individual projects under the guidance of a faculty mentor. In addition, department faculty members provide training to enhance manuscript and grant writing skills.
