What You Need to Know
The Pediatric Otolaryngology fellowship is a 12-month program based on the core curriculum as outlined by the ACGME for pediatric otolaryngology training. There is no certification or certificate of added qualifications offered for Pediatric Otolaryngology at this time. The fellow’s clinical responsibilities include:
Examination and assessment of patients in the outpatient department and the ENT clinic
Examination and assessment of inpatient consultations in the hospital
Surgical cases in the operating room
Teaching residents and medical students (3 residents are on service at all times)
Research - an extensive array of both basic science and clinical projects are available
Quality improvement project.
The weekday rotations maximize the learning experience of the pediatric otolaryngology fellow. The fellow splits time between operating rooms and general pediatric otolaryngology clinics as well as many multidisciplinary clinics including cleft/craniofacial, hearing, sinus, sleep, and voice. The fellow will also participate in a four-week rotation with the plastic and reconstructive surgery department for intensive exposure to cleft lip and palate surgical management and other relevant plastic surgery cases.

The Pediatric Otolaryngology Department offers morning conferences rotated among the clinical faculty, research, journal club, literature review, M&M, guest speakers, and audiology. The Pediatric Otolaryngology service presents Grand Rounds at the Department of Otolaryngology. There is weekly pre operative conference during which time up coming and interesting cases are reviewed with all faculty and residents on service. Active discussion of cases is encouraged amongst the faculty and trainees.
Presentations at local and national meetings are encouraged.
