Program Overview

Otolaryngology Residency

Welcome to the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at Thomas Jefferson University. We are delighted that you are interested in our residency program and hope this website will provide you with useful details to learn more about us and what makes our program so unique.

The Otolaryngology residency program at Jefferson consists of five years of progressive clinical and surgical training in all aspects of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery. This includes head and neck oncology, facial plastics and reconstructive surgery (including complex microvascular free flap reconstructions), otology, rhinology, laryngology, pediatric otolaryngology, bronchoesophagology, skull-base surgery, sleep surgery and allergy. The Otolaryngologic training is carried out under the supervision of our large, diverse and dedicated faculty in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital as well as the Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children, where our residents spend 6 months of their training during the PGY2 and PGY4 years. The residency program has the full approval of the Residency Review Committee, and has recently expanded to accept and train five residents a year.

Here at Jefferson, a strong emphasis is placed on surgical training, patient care and management, and clinical and basic sciences research endeavors for the advancement of the field. Each year features a graduated level of resident responsibility as the resident becomes increasingly proficient in caring for the broad spectrum of patients seen within Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery. The great success of graduating residents from this program, both in private practice and academic tracks, is a testament to the quality of training here at Jefferson.
