Biggest strengths of the program: We have a well-rounded experience in all subspecialties of ENT with a diverse range of faculty members who all enjoy teaching. We cover four different hospitals (tertiary referral center, county, VA, and peds) that represent the vast majority of how healthcare is delivered.
