Education in the Department of Otolaryngology at Harvard Medical School is a collaborative effort between four clinical venues: Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Boston Children’s Hospital. These institutions work together to provide comprehensive subspecialty training in otolaryngology, including exposure to head and neck oncology, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, thyroid and parathyroid surgery, rhinology, laryngology, otology and neurotology and pediatric otolaryngology.
