Header Otolaryngology

Otolaryngology is the branch of medicine that specializes in the medical and surgical treatment of ear, nose, and throat disorders. Thus, the common or lay term for our field is ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat). The official name of the specialty is otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. This reflects the diversity of our field; encompassing multiple organ systems and the ability to treat diseases both medically and surgically. To become a physician in our specialty, one must complete at least five years of surgical residency training. Typically, this is comprised of one year in general surgical training and four years in otolaryngology - head and neck surgery specialization. After completion of training, the physician must pass a rigorous battery of written and oral examinations to become "board certified in otolaryngology." This qualification ensures a standard of high quality competence of knowledge and skill in this field.
