Program Director Welcome
Welcome to the University of
Colorado Otolaryngology Residency Program!
Our residency combines nationally recognized clinical faculty with
cutting edge research opportunities and a comprehensive educational curriculum
to prepare residents for independent practice.
Our residents come to Colorado from diverse backgrounds and medical
schools all over the country, and attain both highly ranked fellowships and
competitive practice positions after graduation.
The vision for otolaryngology
residents trained at the University of Colorado is to provide the knowledge,
skills, and tools residents need to provide comprehensive, compassionate, and
quality care for patients with head and neck diseases, both during residency
and beyond. We commit to providing a
supportive working and learning environment with mentorship and coaching to
achieve this goal. Faculty within every
subspecialty of otolaryngology who have a strong commitment to education make
this possible. I believe that “the
people make the program,” and our accomplished and outstanding group of faculty
and residents make our program an excellent place to train and work.
When deciding on an otolaryngology residency
program, applicants want to know that they will experience the breadth and
depth of otolaryngology, that they will engage in sufficient operative cases to
be competent surgeons, and that there is a supportive environment with people
committed to their success. At the
University of Colorado Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery, we have multiple faculty
within every subspecialty of otolaryngology, high operative case volume, and a
clear commitment to the success of our trainees. We welcome you to see what we have to offer.
