The Harvard Medical School Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery Residency Program currently accepts five residents per year. Applications are due each year on October 20th.

There are two separate tracks for residency training, differentiated by time allotted for research training.

  • The clinical track is a total of five years of training. We accept four clinical track residents each year.
  • The research track is a total of seven years training: five clinical years, and an additional two years devoted entirely to research training. This research block falls between the PGY-2 and PGY-3 years of training and is supported by an NIDCD training grant. We accept one research track resident each year.

We offer four PGY-1 positions on the clinical track and one PGY-1 position on the research track for each year. A resident applicant may be a candidate for one or both tracks. Interviews for both tracks are conducted at the same time.
 

How to Apply

Our program participates in the ERAS application and NRMP Match. The clinical and research tracks are identified by two different numbers in the NRMP Program.

Application requirements

  • Completed ERAS application
  • Three (3) letters of recommendation

Residency interviews for the program are held at Mass Eye and Ear. The interview format includes six interviews for each applicant, lunch with the faculty and residents, and tours of the facilities at both Mass Eye and Ear and the Brigham and Women's Hospital campus, with ample opportunity for questions. In addition, there is an opportunity to meet with the residents at a dinner the evening before the interview day.
