International Observership in Otolaryngology

The observership programs in otolaryngology, are subspecialty-based rotations designed for the otolaryngologists in their final year of training, or in otolaryngology practice, who wish to enhance their surgical skill set and fund of knowledge, in a particular subspecialty of otolarynogology. The number of participants per month, as well as the maximum number of months the participant can attend, may vary between subspecialties. The participant observes their faculty mentors in the operating rooms and clinics, at our main teaching facilities on the University of Miami Medical Campus. They also have full access to all weekly otolaryngology teaching conferences, which are provided to our residents and fellows. A schedule of weekly educational activities, clinics, and surgeries, will be provided. If the participant is interested in more than one observership during their stay in Miami, this can also be arranged. The official language is English. However, most of the faculty mentors and staff speak Spanish as well, for Latin American participants
