Otolaryngology Residency Program
Welcome from the Program Director
We are pleased to offer this information about one of the most dynamic and challenging Otolaryngology/ENT residency programs in the nation. When the University of Rochester Medical Center elevated Otolaryngology to department status, it presented opportunities for faculty to flourish in their roles as academic health center physicians, scientists and educators. It also presented opportunities to any resident interested in a training program infused with enthusiasm, possibility and dedication to quality care.
This website provides a wealth of information about our program. Please direct any questions to our Residency Coordinator, Sheila K. McCart, (585) 276-5181.

With the goal of being counted among the leading otolaryngology departments in the nation, we focus on state-of-the-art clinical care, research and education in an academic medical center. Applicants to our Otolaryngology Residency Program can expect an enlightened, forward-thinking environment that will test their abilities as a physician, as an agent for ongoing discovery and as a human being. We also promise each resident an open and fair evaluation of his or her application.
Residents see cases generated from approximately 40,000 outpatient private visits and 2,800 outpatient clinic visits per year. Surgery volume resulting from this approaches 4,200 surgical cases which the residents participate in throughout the year. A full spectrum of clinical cases is available for teaching, and residents finishing the program perform approximately 1,800 cases as operating surgeons. An important feature of this residency is that it offers an extensive general training in otolaryngology with exposure to fellowship trained faculty in all subspecialties available in otolaryngology. This has resulted in a high level of clinical case material and resulting training.
