The Harvard Medical School / Mass Eye and Ear / Mass General Brigham Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery Residency Program has a long tradition of providing residents with strong foundations in all aspects of otolaryngology–head and neck surgery. Since our educational efforts began with our first residency class in 1830, the program has grown to include more than 150 faculty members from our five clinical venues.

Under the leadership of Program Director Stacey T. Gray, MD, and Associate Program Directors Kevin S. Emerick, MD, and Alice Z. Maxfield, MD, the program offers the expertise of world-renowned faculty representing the full range of subspecialty areas, including: general and pediatric otolaryngology, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, head and neck oncology, laryngology, otology and neurotology, rhinology, and thyroid and parathyroid surgery.

The HMS Department of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery upholds diversity, equity, and inclusion as core values of our institution and as imperatives to driving meaningful change within and beyond our department. The Harvard Medical School / Mass Eye and Ear / Mass General Brigham Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery Residency Program pledges to advocate for each of these principles as we work to create an environment in which different points of view are sought out and celebrated, and people of all backgrounds feel safe, welcomed, valued, and engaged within our community. We recognize the deep and abiding disparities that have affected and continue to affect our community and those we serve, and we want to do the work of naming, measuring, and rectifying those disparities. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are not static values: they demand our attention and inspire our action.

We are also strongly committed to research, with basic science, translational, and clinical research laboratories supported by more than $10 million in annual research funding from the National Institutes of Health, providing an exceptional setting for understanding the scientific basis and future of our specialty.

Due to our robust research presence, we offer a research track for one resident each year that allows for two years of research training between PGY-2 and PGY-3, supported by a T32-training grant from the NIDCD.

The HMS/MEE/MGB Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery residency program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
