The etymology of the word "doctor" means both "teacher" and "leader". At Vanderbilt Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, we know exactly what makes our training program one of the best in the country; the people. Our otolaryngology experts are committed to educating, supporting, and encouraging our residents and fellows. Each year, we welcome 25 residents and nine fellows to collaborate with us, helping to create innovative new surgical techniques, cutting-edge research, and the most streamlined, compassionate patient care. We aren't just creating excellent physicians and surgeons in our training program - we're helping to model the future leaders in healthcare and beyond. And we have fun while educating each other!
