Otology/Neurotology Fellowship Program

About the Program

The University of Pittsburgh Otology/Neurotology Fellowship program is ACGME accredited and has three neurotology faculty members.

Our two-year Otology/Neurotology fellowship provides:

  • An extensive variety of medical and surgical experiences
  • A solid foundation in auditory and vestibular sciences
  • A thorough understanding of audiologic and vestibular testing.

To achieve these objectives, fellows will spend time in the clinic and operating room setting and will participate in required rotations that will provide in-depth exposure to:

  • Audiology
  • Vestibular disorders
  • Neuroradiology
  • Neuropathology
  • Facial nerve disorders
  • Stereotactic radiation therapy
  • Anterior skull base approaches

The fellowship also includes a comprehensive didactic program offering exposure to the basic sciences related to neurotology and an opportunity to conduct clinical and/or basic science research.

Fellowship training will be based primarily at the Eye & Ear Institute and adjoining hospitals (UPMC Presbyterian and UPMC Montefiore).
