Education : Residency Program

Residency Program Overview

Residency training at the University of Miami is a commitment to education. During your residency, you will have the opportunity to provide patient care under the direction of faculty dedicated to their patients and to your education. You will be afforded the opportunity to attend a multitude of didactic conferences, seminars, and medical meetings. We view this training program as far more than a surgical apprenticeship. Residency training in Otolaryngology is an exciting and challenging experience. Commit yourself to becoming the best Otolaryngologist that you can be.

The first year of residency requires six months of training in the following specialties: anesthesia, neurosurgery, oral maxillofacial trauma, plastic surgery and neuroradiology. The remaining six months are spent on the otolaryngology service. Our program matches 3 residents each year for the five year training program. We match one resident each year for the 6 year research track. The research track resident will take one year off from clinical services at the PGY2 level for a dedicated year of research.

All applications must be submitted through the ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service)) website. Our program does not have a minimum USMLE Step 1 requirement. Every application is reviewed by a member of the faculty. Applicants must submit three (3) letters of recommendation (preferable from other academic otolaryngologists). Research experience is strongly preferred, but not required. We consider International Medical Graduates who meet the qualifications listed above and posses a valid ECFMG Certificate with passing scores on Step 1, 2, 3. Previous clinical and/or research experience in the United States is preferred but not required.

  • We do not sponsor H-1 visas.

If you are chosen for an interview, you can expect to be notified by October 15 each year. Interviews dates for the 2017-2018 season are Saturday, December 2, 2017 and Saturday, January 27th, 2018.
