The Otolaryngology Residency Program is conducted in two hospitals - Strong Memorial Hospital with 750 beds and Highland Hospital with 220 beds as well as an otolaryngology imaging lab and UR Medicine Otolaryngology, a practice managed by faculty members with facilities near the hospitals and in a high-traffic suburban location. Our Clinton Woods Clinic, Sawgrass Surgical Center, Wilmot Cancer Institute and our Academic Offices at Strong also support our program.
- Our 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.
- Attending surgeons are available for operating room and clinic coverage on a daily basis, as well as for consultative and emergency services throughout the day and night. Direct supervision is always provided to residents in our program.
An important feature of our residency program 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.
