Otolaryngology Residency at The Mount Sinai Hospital

The Otolaryngology Residency Program at The Mount Sinai Hospital is a five-year program, with four residents in each incoming year. We designed this 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. You will 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.


We maintain an internationally recognized, active clinical research program, and you will have 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 six-month rotation consists of part research, part clinical activities.

Our training hospitals enrich the medical learning experience while fostering continuity of care and encouraging the development of interpersonal skills, professionalism, and system-based practice.
