Otolaryngology Residency Program at the Icahn School of Medicine

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai/New York Eye and Ear Infirmary houses a distinguished residency training program in otolaryngology. As the largest program in the country with six residents per training year, it represents a combination of two previously independent programs with complementary strengths.

Our extensive faculty includes multiple fellowship-trained surgeons in each subspecialty (otology-neurotology, rhinology, facial plastics, head and neck surgery, laryngology, pediatrics, and sleep), many of whom are nationally and internationally renowned experts. In addition to traditional surgical techniques, residents are exposed to advanced technology, such as virtual reality and robotics. We also maintain an active clinical research program with 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.

The resident community is a cohesive group of ambitious and innovative young physicians who collaborate not only in delivering patient care and accomplishing pioneering research, but also in providing guidance for continual growth and improvement of the training program. Located in New York City and drawing from patient populations near and far, the surgical training and opportunity for advanced education in subspecialty otolaryngology is exceptional.

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.
