Yale Otolaryngology Residency Program

The Yale Otolaryngology Residency Program is composed of highly dedicated head and neck physicians and surgeons joined by a skilled team of rehabilitation specialists in speech, swallow, and hearing restoration. The mission is not only to provide the best medical care to patients with head and neck disease and disorders, but to train highly confident, responsible, and compassionate otolaryngologists. The Program offers an exceptionally strong training program, while encouraging independent thinking and scholarly investigation. Graduates from our program can expect to pass the American Board of Otolaryngology qualifying examination so that they may pursue their goals in fellowships, scientific research, private and/or academic practice.


In addition to opportunities for clinical research in the above areas, the house officers participate in laboratory research, either in the laryngology or otology laboratories. Dedicated research time is available during the fourth year of training.
