Tidewater Otolaryngology Society (TOS) Schedule


The Visiting Professor Series of the Tidewater Otolaryngology Society will include a series of evenings featuring fabulous social hours, scrumptious dinners and fascinating presentations from leaders in our field.  Dates are tentatively scheduled for:

  • Thursday, October 19, 2017
  • Thursday, February 15, 2018
  • Thursday, March 15, 2018
  • Thursday, May 17, 2018

The list of upcoming speakers will present topics that are interesting and practical.  The upcoming speakers are Drs. Arthur Hengerer (Univ of Rochester), Peter Manes (Yale), Russell Smith (Nebraska Medical Center), and Mark Courey (Mount Sinai). The topics will be relevant and clinically applicable.  As always, flyers and directions will be delivered by email 2 weeks in advance.   
Traditionally, the costs of the meetings have been largely funded by support from educational grants and industry in addition to membership dues.  Obviously, expenses associated with travel and meals are rising, and grants are getting harder to obtain.  In order to be able to continue the series over the long term, we need to make sure expenses are covered. The charge for individual dinner events for those without a membership will be $75.00.  RSVPs will also be critical to control costs and will be appreciated. Membership dues for the Visiting Professor series are $250 for active physicians.  Resident membership is free. Dues for retired physicians and physicians in their first year of practice are $150.  Any questions about dues can be directed to Aprell Scott at 388-6228 or by email at scottae@evms.edu .
Sincerely yours,  
Matthew J. Bak, M.D., F.A.C.S. President, Tidewater Otolaryngology Society
