Education & Training

In partnership with Albert Einstein College of Medicine, the Otolaryngology Division at CHAM offers hands-on clinical opportunities for medical students interested in pursuing the complex field of ear, nose and throat medicine. 

Einstein consistently ranks among the nation's leaders in research support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Einstein and Montefiore Medical Center have been awarded a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) by the NIH that supports the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR), one of only 39 such centers in the nation. 

Clinical Clerkship in Otolaryngology (Montefiore Medical Center)

This four-week rotation is designed for students interested in careers in family practice, medicine, pediatrics and otolaryngology/head and neck surgery. Students will obtain skills in the clinical examination and diagnosis of problems in the head and neck, including otoscopy, nasal endoscopy and laryngoscopy for both adult and pediatric patients.  

Students will learn and participate in the basics of airway management, sinus disease and hearing disorders, cancers of the head and neck, as well as general ear, nose and throat anatomy and disease. Students are expected to be an active part of the otolaryngology team, supplement their clinical exposure with reading, and participate in office hours with attendings.  

Ample opportunity will be created for students to observe or assist with surgical procedures, tailored to their interest.  In addition, students are expected to attend all conferences and give a brief presentation on a topic related to otolaryngology at the end of the rotation.
