Our program has a rich history with the first Professorship of Otology dating back to 1872. Our first full-time chair, Dr. George Reed, took his position in 1964. Since then, many faculty and residents have come through our program. We provide strong clinical training in all subspecialties of otolaryngology. We take three residents per year. More than half of our residents go on to fellowship training and usually match in their top choices. We also have a 1 year fellowship in craniomaxillofacial surgery. We encourage you to take a look around our site and hope you consider applying to our training program.


Dr. Amar Suryadevara MD – Professor, Interim Chair and Residency Program Director

The clinical and surgical experience is enhanced through weekly basic science and subspecialty lectures, Grand Rounds Lectures, Multi-Specialty conferences, Morbidity and Mortality Conference, and Journal Club.

Throughout the year, a series of surgical anatomy laboratories are held in the College of Medicine gross anatomy lab and a temporal bone dissection course is performed within the department’s temporal bone laboratory. PGY-5 residents also partake in a microvascular anastomosis laboratory. Residents also have a total of four months dedicated to research during the PGY-3 year.
