LVHN offers one categorical position per year in our five-year otolaryngology program. The residency provides a diverse clinical experience in all components of otolaryngology. A structured didactic curriculum is in place which includes: weekly didactic sessions, journal club, visiting professor lectures, surgical grand rounds, mortality and morbidity conference and tumor board conferences.
Additionally, the residency is supported by an American College of Surgeons-accredited Surgical Education Center. The defined curriculum for residents includes hands-on practice with both low- and high-fidelity simulators. Participation in a clinical research project during training adds to the educational experience. There are resources within the department of surgery and in the institution to assist residents with their projects. The residents at LVHN have a long history of clinical research resulting in articles published in peer-reviewed journals and presentations at national and regional meetings, for which they have won numerous awards. Funding is provided to residents to attend regional or national educational conferences. Additional funding is available to residents presenting papers or posters.
