The residency program in the Department of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery at IU School of Medicine is based on the core curriculum of the American Board of Otolaryngology and includes five years of post-graduate medical education. In year one, residents focus on general surgery residency at IU Health University Hospital and affiliated hospitals. For the remaining 48 months, resident training occurs in hospitals affiliated with IU School of Medicine in Indianapolis.
Residents learn from faculty members with advanced training and expertise in head and neck oncology and reconstructive surgery, laryngology, pediatric otolaryngology, neurotology, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and endoscopic sinus surgery. Yet, the program isn’t limited to a future physician’s training and graduating. Department faculty members serve as professional mentors to residents for the rest of their careers.
Upon completing this residency program, residents will have exceeded the requirements of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and the Residency Review Committee for Otolaryngology.
