Program Overview

Our fellowship was established in 1990 and delivers a broad spectrum of clinical training in pediatric otolaryngology. Our eight full-time faculty members have expertise in managing patients with childhood hearing loss, chronic ear disease and cochlear implants; microtia and aural atresia; velopharyngeal dysfunction, cleft palate and craniofacial anomalies; vascular anomalies; chronic sinusitis; and airway obstruction, aerodigestive issues and head and neck tumors, including thyroid.

The one-year clinical fellowship provides an in-depth education in all of these clinical areas through the extensive subspecialty clinics. One-year clinical fellows must publish at least one clinical project. There is an option for a second year of research training funded by the University of Washington NIH T-32 training grant. The optional second research year is dependent upon qualification for the NIH teaching grant and can be focused on the fellow's area of interest.

We are an ACGME-accredited program and we participate in the San Francisco match. Our fellows are compensated at the rate of a PGY-6 University of Washington surgery resident.

Length of fellowship: 1-year clinical fellowship with optional 1-year research fellowship

Number of fellowships available: 2
