DHMC's otolaryngology residency program provides residents with comprehensive training and education in the medical and surgical care of patients with diseases and disorders that affect the head and neck.
We recognize that it is difficult for a resident entering a training program to commit to any given career path in otolaryngology. We have therefore structured this residency in such a way as to expose each resident to every aspect of otolaryngology and prepare him/her for a subspecialty fellowship or a general otolaryngology practice.
Every level of complexity, age group and subspecialty practice is abundantly available. Our research opportunities are diverse and the research experience is well structured. You will leave this residency equipped to practice all aspects of general otolaryngology. In addition, you will have sufficient exposure to the more highly specialized aspects of our specialty to be able to make an informed decision regarding possible fellowship training or a career in basic science or outcomes research.
We are proud to report that our new residency program achieved full continued accreditation status from the Otolaryngology Residency Review Committee (RRC) and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in March 2011. We currently have a full complement of five residents, and graduated our first PGY-5 resident in June 2012.
