The Emory Research Group in Otolaryngology (ERGO) was founded in 2016 by faculty of the Department of Otolaryngology. The ERGO mission is:

  1. To promote innovative, practice-changing research in the field of otolaryngology by faculty, residents, medical students, and staff at Emory University.

  2. To establish the Emory Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery as a nationally recognized leader in clinical research conception and execution.

Since its inception, ERGO has provided a central resource for the research efforts of the department across campuses.

ERGO Meetings

ERGO meetings occur quarterly to provide a discussion forum for future and completed research projects, and for faculty to provide didactics on clinical research skills. Quarterly Otolaryngology Grand Rounds are also dedicated to ERGO topics.
