Our electives give M3 and M4 students a strong understanding of the basics of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery. Almost all physicians see patients with head and neck issues in their practice, and your knowledge and recognition of these problems will save patients time and money.
Our basic objectives are:
- To expose you to the general field of otolaryngology - head and neck surgery
- To teach you how to evaluate and manage some common otolaryngology problems
- To help determine the appropriateness of referral of future patients to an otolaryngologist
Students are responsible for completing certain tasks prior to your rotation.
We encourage your active participation during this clerkship. Our full-time staff and residents are available to you at all times for questions in our department offices and/or in hospitals.
