Scope and Objectives

The Department of Head and Neck Surgery academic programs consist of a nationally recognized residency program, medical school education, prestigious fellowships, and ongoing continuing medical education. A critical success factor in these academic efforts is the high level of clinical expertise demonstrated by all faculty members. Additionally, department faculty members have an active commitment to basic science and clinical research as an integral component of the program of instruction. These tenets not only ensure quality at every educational level, but also provide a superior milieu for the development of teacher-investigators.

The residency program is incorporated into the department patient care and research activities in six affiliated medical centers and exposes residents to all of the subspecialities during the course of their training. Medical student teaching is a combined effort by faculty members, fellows, and residents and consists of lectures, didactic learning, and hands-on experience in clinical and research settings. The department offers one- and two-year fellowships.
