Education

Otolaryngology Residency Program
The Residency Program in Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Arizona is an ACGME accredited five-year residency program, with one resident per year. Directed by Audrey Erman MD, our faculty provides a comprehensive training experience in not only the general management of head and neck disorders, but we also offer specialized training in otology/neurotology, cranial base surgery, head and neck oncology, facial plastics and reconstructive surgery, rhinology, laryngology and pediatric otolaryngology.

University of Arizona Rhinology and Skull Base Surgery Fellowship
This is a one-year fellowship in sinus and skull base surgery at the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ beginning July 2015. The fellow will be exposed to a large volume of primary and revision endoscopic sinus surgery, benign and malignant sinonasal tumor surgery and skull base procedures in partnership with neurosurgery.  The fellowship will also offer tremendous opportunities for clinical and/or translational research.

Medical Students
The Department of Otolaryngology is highly interested in medical students of all levels. An Otolaryngology Student Interest Group is available to first- and second-year students. Third-year students can take a 3-week elective within their surgical core rotation. Fourth-year students, both visiting and students at the UA COM, are invited to participate in a 4-week elective rotation. These rotations are all offered throughout the calendar year.
