Starting with the 2018-2019 match, five residency positions are available each year. Four of these positions are dedicated to our five-year clinical training program and one to our six-year Advanced Research Training in Otolaryngology Program. While at Michigan, residents are trained in the following:
- Cranial base surgery
- Facial plastic and reconstructive surgery
- General otolaryngology
- Head and neck oncology
- Pediatric otolaryngology
Small group and departmental teaching conferences occur throughout the program. Didactic teachings include weekly lectures, grand rounds and laboratory sessions. Special courses are given in temporal bone surgery, head and neck oncology, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, microvascular surgery, nasal endoscopy and research techniques.
Residents complete 6-18 months of research, depending on their program track. Results are presented during the annual Charles J. Krause Lectureship and submitted for publication.
Overall, it is our goal to develop residents who have expertise and knowledge in the diagnosis, management and research of otolaryngic conditions.
