Dissection Courses

  • Endoscopic Sinus -- The otolaryngology residents participate in the endoscopic sinus surgery dissection course each year. This provides for directed instruction and practice in acquiring basic skills in sinus surgery.
  • Plastics -- A yearly facial plastics course with lecture and dissection is provided. Residents are encouraged to attend particularly in their 4th and 5th years of otolaryngology training.
  • Temporal Bone -- A full temporal bone dissection course is required during the research year. Dedicated readings and active faculty participation allow for an in-depth experience.
  • Laryngology -- A laryngeal course with dissection component occurs on a biannual basis. The residents in their 3rd and 4th years of training are encouraged to attend to gain a stimulator experience in laryngeal dissection techniques.


  Residents in the program are registered by the department as a resident member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. This provides additional didactic experience via the Home Study course provided for each resident during their 3rd and 4th year of Otolaryngology.
