Department of

Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery


Fellowship training in Head and Neck Oncology, accredited by the Advanced Training Council for Approval of Training in Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery, is sponsored by the American Head and Neck Society.

The program, in existence since 1969, has achieved national and international prominence with almost all graduates being placed in academic medical programs.The One year program, under the direction of Keith Wilson, MD, associate professor, emphasizes five specific areas within the field of head and neck surgery:

  • The fellows will be familiarized with the surgical and non-surgical therapy of head and neck tumors. Emphasis will be placed on ablative head and neck oncologic surgery, including organ preservation laryngeal surgery.
  • With the development of the anterior endoscopic skull base surgery program, in collaboration with the Department of Neurosurgery, the fellow will be integrated into the clinical and research activities and be expected to demonstrate a high level of proficiency in these surgical techniques.
  • Surgical management of thyroid and parathyroid disease will be emphasized during the fellowship as well as office based ultrasonography and minimally invasive surgical approaches.
  • Microvascular reconstruction of the head and neck allows for better cosmetic and functional results. Our fellow is expected to become skillful in free flap reconstruction as well as pediculed flap reconstruction.
  • Our Adult airway reconstruction program is a one of a kind program and expansion of our internationally renowned pediatric airway program. Our fellow should be capable of performing airway evaluation and complex reconstructive procedures and understand when to intervene.
