We currently offer two tracks: three (3) five-year clinical track positions per year and one six-year research track position per year supported by a T32 Residency Training Grant awarded by the NIH in 2018. For more information on our T32 click here. The research track resident will take one year off from clinical services after PGY1 for a dedicated year of research.
The first year of residency has 13 4-week blocks including six blocks of otolaryngology, one block of vacation and the remaining blocks dedicated to anesthesia, neurosurgery, oral maxillofacial trauma, plastic surgery and neuroradiology. PGY 3 year includes six months of dedicated research for all residents.
All applications must be submitted through the ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service)) website. Every application is reviewed. Applicants must submit three (3) letters of recommendation (preferable from other academic otolaryngologists). We value clinical grades and USMLE scores, research experience, publications and presentations, community service, letters of recommendation, personal statements and awards. Our goal is to recruit diverse applicants with strong ethics and academic achievements.
We consider International Medical Graduates who meet the qualifications listed above and possess a valid ECFMG Certificate with passing scores on Step 1, 2, 3. Previous clinical and/or research experience in the United States is preferred.
- Our sponsoring institution, Jackson Memorial Hospital, does not sponsor H-1 visas.
