Advanced Research Training in Otolaryngology Program
Since 1986, the Advanced Research Training in Otolaryngology Program has provided research training in otolaryngology-related disciplines for medical students, resident physicians and post-residency fellows to develop the next generation of clinician-scientists. Research mentors are part of our internationally-recognized faculty consisting of both basic and clinical researchers in a broad variety of disciplines. Many mentors are themselves accomplished clinician-scientists who are in demand as research mentors.
