Didactic Program

Didactic sessions are held every Thursday at 7AM. During this time, residents are excused from typical clinical responsibilities.  The first hour is spent alongside the full-time faculty in a conference setting with a rotating schedule of Grand Rounds, Morbidity and Mortality conference, and Facial Trauma Conference. The remaining two hours are comprised of a mix of faculty-led lectures, Journal Club, Radiology Conference and Business of Medicine sessions. Our faculty-led lectures are structured to represent each subspecialty to allow residents to access subspecialty knowledge in addition to foundational Otolaryngology education.
