The Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, commonly referred to as ENT, is dedicated to the treatment of patients with diseases of the ears, nose and throat. The Department is composed of three interactive components: Clinical Practice, Research and Education. The clinical program is dedicated to a single mission -- to provide outstanding care for patients with otorhinolaryngologic disease.
Our educational program is dedicated to training outstanding Otorhinolaryngologists. We, as a Department, take great pride in the accomplishments of our residents -- watching them grow from recent medical graduates to highly skilled practitioners. We are committed to insuring that our trainees recognize and respect the importance of humanism in this age of technology -- caring for patients, not diseases.
