The Department of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery at IU School of Medicine offers three one-year fellowships: Head and Neck Oncology and Reconstructive Surgery; Advanced Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery; and Rhinology and Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery.
These multidisciplinary experiences are designed to prepare trainees for a career in academic medicine. Outside of clinical duties, a strong emphasis will be placed on a fellow’s role as a future educator.
Those interested in any of the department's fellowships can learn more by contacting Jane Adamson, otolaryngology residency coordinator.
The fellowship consists of multiple integrated, but distinct settings: a university-based reconstructive practice; an offsite academic cosmetic and suburban practice; a county hospital and an outpatient ambulatory surgery center.
Fellows gain exposure to techniques involved in advanced ablative and endocrine procedures, open and endoscopic skull base surgery; head and neck reconstruction; and oncology care of head and neck cancer patients.
This one-year fellowship experience in the department focuses developing skills in assessment, treatment strategies and surgical techniques used in the management of complex rhinologic and neuro-rhinologic conditions.
IU School of Medicine offers a competitive salary and benefits package for fellows. The Department of Otolaryngology provides additional support. In addition to the generous benefits package IU School of Medicine provides, otolaryngology fellows receive additional professional development funds, equipment, paid time off and other support.
