The Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery of the University of Maryland School of Medicine has a full-time, ACGME accredited residency in Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery, as well as offering rotations for medical students.
The Department takes 3 residents per year for the 5-year residency program in Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery, whose primary teaching site is the University of Maryland Medical Center, with a major secondary site at the Baltimore VA Hospital. Both of these sites have busy cochlear implant programs. We have rotations for medical students as well, including an elective subinternship in Otolaryngology and an elective rotation in Pediatric Otolaryngology, both of which are open to students from any LCME accredited medical school. Both of these rotations include exposure to cochlear implantation and other forms of hearing restoration, in addition to exposure to general Otology and Neurotology. Observerships, or Externships, are also available for international students in non-LCME accredited schools. All of the clinical electives, with the exception of the Otolaryngology subinternship, can be tailored to focus specifically on Otology/Neurotology, in general, or cochlear implantation, in particular.
