The Harvard Medical School Otolaryngology Residency Program has a long tradition of providing residents with strong foundations in all aspects of otolaryngologyhead 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, 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.

We’re 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 Otolaryngology residency program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
