Residents are trained in a multidisciplinary approach to patient care as they participate in Tumor Board and Pediatric Sleep Study/Sleep Apnea grand rounds. They also serve as members of the Cleft/Craniofacial Team at DMC Children’s Hospital of Michigan.
Residents have access to both Detroit Medical Center’s and Michigan State University’s extensive medical library and electronic resources. A generous yearly stipend is allotted for educational pursuits. PGY-2 residents attend a 6-week Otolaryngology Basic Science course at the University of Iowa. The Temporal Bone Lab provides an individual workstation for each resident complete with operating microscopes and updated drill and instrument systems. Residents have access to a virtually unlimited supply of temporal bones. In addition, there are multiple opportunities throughout the year to attend academy meetings, laboratory courses, and hands-on workshops.
