Research is a core value at the heart of the Yale Otolaryngology Residency Program. At Yale, residents have access to incredible resources to pursue what interests them the most in terms of both subject and method of research. There are opportunities to work on cutting edge bench research both within and outside the Division of Otolaryngology, as well as mentors available to assist with obtaining grants to work on dedicated projects. The volume of clinical research projects available to residents also represents an enormous strength of Yale, with projects readily available in Facial Plastics, Rhinology, Allergy, Head and Neck Oncology, Laryngology, Otology, Pediatrics, and Sleep Medicine. Ultimately residents are expected to complete one major project prior to graduation and 3 months of dedicated research time are given to each resident in their third year in order to achieve this aim.
