The Residency in Otolaryngology

UPMC Department of Otolaryngology offers an exceptionally strong training experience for otolaryngology residents. The fundamental principle of the program is that resident responsibility is allocated gradually over the course of the five-year program, equivalent with the resident’s abilities and maturity.

The greatest strength of our program is the outstanding and committed teaching staff of full-time faculty, all of whom place the excellence of the residency-training program as their highest priority in their academic endeavors.

The administrative, research, and a portion of the clinical activities of the Department of Otolaryngology are housed in the Eye & Ear Institute, one of the few centers in the United States dedicated solely to the specialties of otolaryngology and ophthalmology.

Additional inpatient and outpatient clinical sites are located at UPMC hospitals, including:

  • UPMC Presbyterian
  • UPMC Montefiore
  • UPMC Mercy
  • UPMC Shadyside
  • UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh
  • Affiliated VA Hospital (located a short walk from the Eye and Ear Institute)

Today, with 87,000 employees, UPMC is comprised of 40 hospitals and a network of other care sites, including:

  • Doctors’ offices
  • Cancer centers
  • Outpatient treatment centers
  • Specialized imaging and surgery facilities
  • In-home care
