Education and Training

operating room

The Department of Otolaryngology of the Emory University School of Medicine administers an extensive training program that encompasses an ACGME-accredited residency, fellowships that allow otolaryngology graduates to train in the sub-specialty of their choice, programs for medical students, and multiple CME courses designed for practicing otolaryngologists and otolaryngologists-in-training. These training options are managed and directed by our eminent faculty, catalyzed by state of the art treatment technologies, and empowered by clinical programs that are high volume referral services ranked in the upper tiers of their particular specialties.

Clinical and surgical education at Emory is elevated by the presence of a large patient population, multiple facilities, and numerous affiliated and supportive agencies. Metropolitan Atlanta's 4.5 million people provide the breadth of experience necessary for a complete medical education.

Emory Otolaryngology's training components also benefit from being located in a vibrant, multi-faceted, and inspirational campus community that thrives on interaction and cross-collaboration. The department is part of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center of Emory University, which includes the Emory schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health; Yerkes National Primate Research Center, one of only seven national primate research centers funded by the NIH; Emory Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, Georgia's first NCI-designated Cancer Center; and Emory Healthcare, the largest and most comprehensive health system in the state. The Emory medical community also has close ties with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Cancer Society, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and other research institutions throughout the state and nation.
