Message from the Program Director

As the largest Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery program in the country we train approximately 25-30 total residents per year. The residency program is completed over a five year period; residents will either pursue specialized fellowship training following graduation, or secure a position as a practicing otolaryngologist.

Our program is in-line with the Royal College standards and as of the 2016-2017 academic year we follow the new Competency by Design (CBD) curriculum. In 2021 all levels of training will be fully immersed in the CBD curriculum. Please view our CaRMS page for a detailed program description which includes CBD information and our Annual Percy Ireland page to view the outstanding research accomplishments by our residents.
