Otolaryngology Residency Program
Thank you for your interest in the Otolaryngology Residency Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. The residency is a five-year program, with four residents in each incoming year. Overall, we designed this five-year program to give residents the education and clinical training necessary for progressively increasing responsibility in patient care management.
Our department maintains an active educational program that includes bedside and clinic teaching, operating room instruction, basic science research, and a comprehensive conference schedule in both the basic and clinical sciences. Residents receive broad experience in general otorhinolaryngology, as well as extensive specialized work in head and neck surgery, otologic and neuro-otologic surgery, facial plastic (cosmetic) and reconstructive surgery, rhinologic and sinus surgery, laryngology maxillofacial trauma, and pediatric otolaryngology.
The Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery maintains an internationally recognized, active clinical research program, and each resident has access to a large variety of research projects during training. In fact, the Head and Neck Cancer Research Program is the leading global resource for dormant tumor cell research.
Research is combined as part of the PGY-3 training year, during which a 6-month rotation consists of part research, part clinical activities. Our current department research activities may be found at the Head and Neck Cancer Research website.
