Otolaryngology Fellowship Programs

Emory Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery offers seven fellowship programs that give otolaryngology residency graduates the opportunity to train in the sub-specialty of their choosing, thereby preparing them for a more effective and successful practice. Along with their training obligations, fellows will support residents' educational experiences.

In addition to these fellowships, one of our faculty, Raj Dedhia, MD, is the sleep surgery educator for the Emory Department of Medicine's Sleep Medicine Fellowship. See the description at the bottom of the page.
