The Division’s ACGME-accredited fellowship program aims to provide the necessary diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical skills in all aspects of pediatric otolaryngology. This will enable the successful graduate to attain a position in a tertiary-care pediatric institution, managing the full spectrum of pediatric otolaryngologic cases. Fellows will have close interaction with the pediatric ICU and neonatal ICU personnel, as well as experience with our pediatric trauma center.
Fellows are responsible for the ongoing care of hospitalized patients, as well as those seen in their clinic sessions. Attending staff back-up is available for on-call responsibilities as well as emergency surgical cases. The didactic program involves a weekly rotating conference schedule consisting of radiology, pathology, and interdisciplinary group meetings to include a difficult case conference as well as a physician-assistant conference to review otolaryngology topics.
Along with weekly case review and walk rounds with the attending staff, fellows have quarterly dinners at a faculty member’s home to discuss various topics.
Presentation at a national level meeting is expected. Time may be spent with any pediatric, medical or surgical subspecialty service throughout the year to pursue individual interests.
