Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery


The objectives of the Fellowship program are to:

  • Maintain a collegial and collaborative working relationship with the chief resident(s) and other staff.
  • Act as an advisor to the residents as they participate in ward rounds and see consultations from the Emergency Department and General Wards (not intensive care units).
  • Lead the consultation service for the Intensive Care Units (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Critical Care Unit) and provide daily input to them regarding the patients our service has consulted on.
  • Participate in all major surgical cases unique to the practice of paediatric otolaryngology – head & neck surgery.
  • Participate in all surgical cases that evolve from consultations from the Intensive Care Units.
  • Supervise appropriate operative lists during the final six months of training. The fellow will be supported in achieving these goals.
  • Run a fellow’s clinic every one to two weeks (at the discretion of the fellowship director).
  • Participate in special interest clinics (voice clinic, complex sleep disorders clinic, balance clinic, etc.).
  • Attend teaching rounds (Wednesday morning teaching rounds, Friday morning university rounds, monthly journal club evenings).
  • Prepare pathology rounds (once every 6 – 8 weeks) and morbidity and mortality rounds (once every 3 - 4 months).
  • Develop a plan within the first month regarding a research project that can be completed longitudinally throughout the year. The fellow should strive to present this research at a meeting and submit a manuscript for publication. The fellow is encouraged to contact the Fellowship Director well before beginning the fellowship to discuss ideas and plan a topic so he/she can "hit the ground running."
  • Participate in resident call coverage at least one weekday evening per week when necessary.
