The Medical College of Wisconsin's residency program in Otolaryngology is designed to provide residents with education and training in the comprehensive medical and surgical care of patients with diseases and disorders of the head and neck.
The educational program provides core knowledge and understanding of the basic science and clinical medicine relevant to the head and neck. Resident training and education centers around the six ACGME core competencies.
The program includes the clinical aspects of the diagnosis and treatment for diseases of the head and neck. Special emphasis is included in head and neck oncology, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, laryngology, otology, rhinology, sleep medicine, and pediatric otolaryngology.
Our program will prepare a resident for the full scope of the specialty. Each resident will have sufficient independent responsibility to develop sound clinical judgment and to possess the ability to formulate and carry out appropriate management plans at the completion of residency.
Graduates will be well prepared for careers in either academic otolaryngology or private practice and will have received exposure to general principles of practice management, risk management, research development, and literature analysis.
