2021-2022 Application Cycle

Virtual interviews for the upcoming application cycle will be offered on the following days:

Interview dates are subject to change.


Our program has four 5-year positions available and one 6-year research track position available each year. There are no additional materials needed to submit if applying for the research track. 


Our program will participate in the common interview offer timeline recommended by the Otolaryngology Program Directors Organization:

  • All initial interview offers will be released on Friday, November 5, 2021 at 12pm EST
  • Interview invitations will be limited to the number of interview slots available
  • Interview scheduling will open on Monday, November 8, 2021 at 12pm EST
  • If an applicant declines an interview or there is no response by Tuesday, November 9, 2021 at 12pm EST, we will extend the invitation to another applicant


Our program will participate in preference signaling for the 2021-2022 match cycle. We plan to include signaling information as one part of a holistic application review during the interview selection process. We will invite those applicants who have clearly demonstrated the ability to excel in our training environment regardless of whether they have signaled our program. For applicants who are judged to be similar in competitiveness, we will give preference to those who have signaled our program.

Once applicants have been invited to interview, signaling data will not be considered in ranking decisions.
