About This Program
The educational mission of the otolaryngology residency training program at Washington University is to prepare physicians to become competent and highly skilled otolaryngologists with excellent preparation in clinical and surgical patient care, mastery of existing knowledge within the scope of practice, and appropriate experience in teaching and research.
The Department offers two pathways, the 5-year Clinical track and a 7-year Research track.
-The 5-year Clinical track, which includes five months of research time, trains individuals in advanced medical and surgical patient care and introduces them to scientific principles of investigation to enhance the scholarly evidence-based practice of medicine.
-The 7-year Research track, the T32 Physician Scientist Training Program, trains career physician-scientists capable of delivering advanced medical and surgical patient care as well as maintaining active, independently funded research laboratories. It includes two years of contiguous NIH supported research training.
