About the department
The Department of Otorhinolaryngology (ENT)/Head and Neck Surgery at Mayo Clinic is one of the largest ear, nose, and throat practices in the world, with more than 50 specialists. Mayo Clinic head and neck surgeons perform hundreds of more common procedures, such as removal of the thyroid gland (thyroidectomy), repair of eardrum (tympanic membrane) perforations, and sinus surgery, along with highly complex surgeries, such as endoscopy for pituitary tumors, robotic surgery for throat cancer, and microsurgery for acoustic neuroma tumors.

About the programs
Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education offers exceptional otolaryngology (ENT) residencies and fellowships. Unique aspects of the program include:
- ENT in a Nutshell podcast: free production that ENT residents often participate in, providing high-yield clinical review in succinct, yet comprehensive, 20- to 40-minute episodes that can be accessed anytime and anywhere. Great resource for any aspiring or existing ENT resident.
- Surgical Atlas Videos: video series providing residents and medical students with surgical case examples from the different subspecialties within ENT. These videos are created, edited, and narrated by our residents and staff. Our residents use this to prepare for the OR the next day, and review pertinent anatomy after a challenging case.
Candidates may apply to only one program at a time. You may apply to the same program at more than one campus, if available. Learn more about our otolaryngology GME training programs:
