Two ORL Team Members Named Fellows of the American College of Surgeons
Tang Ho, MD, FACS, and Etan Weinstock, MD, FACS, have been selected for fellowship status in the American College of Surgeons (ACS).
Prior to embarking on a career in medicine, Dr. Ho, an assistant professor in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery in the department of Otorhinolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery, was a Fulbright Scholar in the United Kingdom, where he received his master’s degree in sociology from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. He received his medical degree from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore and returned to Texas to complete his otorhinolaryngology—head and neck surgery training at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He completed subspecialty fellowship training in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at Johns Hopkins.
An assistant professor of otorhinolaryngology—head and neck surgery at McGovern Medical School and chief of otorhinolaryngology at Lyndon B. Johnson General Hospital, Dr. Weinstock received his medical degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York prior to moving to Texas to complete his residency at McGovern Medical School. He then pursued subspecialized training in head and neck surgical oncology in a fellowship at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
The ACS admits to its fellowship only those surgeons whose professional activity is devoted to surgical practice and who agree without compromise to practice by the professional and ethical standards of the college. Surgeons who apply for fellowship are evaluated in their practice by their peers.
