Research

Within the Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery Department, there is a strong emphasis in development of research skills.

  • An active Faculty Research Committee guides the facilitation of research activities and oversees the quality and effectiveness of the department research efforts.
  • Funding is available for projects through departmental resources or numerous outside resources.
  • Clinical or basic research is required and is an integral part of the training in Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery.
  • Each resident is expected to document a significant clinical or basic research experience. By the fourth year, each resident should have achieved a goal of submitting one clinical paper, and one basic science paper, or, if constrained by time, preparing documentation that would have supported a formal paper.
  • Departmental research by faculty and residents is ongoing in several areas. These ongoing projects are open to resident and medical student involvement.
