ENT Pathology Fellowship

Introduction: This one-year clinical fellowship program is designed to develop diagnostic expertise in endocrine and head and neck pathology. The wealth of clinical material (in patient and consultation cases) available for fellow training at Mount Sinai is among the best in the country. The opportunity to interact with leading head and neck surgeons and oncologists in clinical care and research is unparalleled. The Multidisciplinary Head, Neck, and Thyroid Center, a Center of Excellence at Mount Sinai, is one of the reasons the Department of Ear, Nose, and Throat/Head and Neck Surgery ranks nationally among the top 10, seeing over 5,000 surgical patients annually. The number of patients cared for at Mount Sinai continues to grow. This reflects the commitment of the institution to advance patient care through research and education.
