Expert Otolaryngologists in a Variety of Fields and Specialties 

Since the inception of the UK College of Medicine Department of Otolaryngology residency program in 1990, all former residents are currently board certified by the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery. Past residents have gone on to practice within a variety of settings throughout the country. Multiple residents have successfully matched into and completed fellowship training within several sub-specialties, including facial plastic surgery, neurotology, head and neck cancer surgery, laryngology, pediatric otolaryngology, and rhinology. Our faculty takes pride in fostering the individual interests and career goals of each resident. We take pride in providing our trainees with all clinical and surgical skills necessary to become expert otolaryngologists, no matter what career path they ultimately pursue.
