Otolaryngology Residency

Training the next generation of otolaryngology—head and neck surgeons

The Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery Residency Program at Indiana University School of Medicine is at the heart of the department. 

Residents and faculty within the department make up an eclectic group of surgeons who have trained and attended medical school all over the country. The department represents all subspecialties within otolaryngology and continually embraces change for improvement through residency retreats, monthly feedback sessions and formal data driven surveys and studies. Mentorship for IU School of Medicine otolaryngology residents begins the day a resident begins and continues through the rest of their careers. Establishing lifelong relationships is paramount to the success of each resident and the department.
