The UCLA Department of Head and Neck Surgery is proud to offer a dedicated academic medicine training program for exceptional residency candidates. Financial support is provided by an NIH-sponsored R25 Mentored Research Pathway for Otolaryngology Residents and Medical Students, through the National Institute of Deafness and Communication Disorders.
At UCLA, we aim to train the next generation of leaders in otolaryngology - head and neck surgery, and to expand our academic reach through the pursuit of leading edge research. The Mentored Research and Academic Leadership Pathway provides an enhanced opportunity for one resident per year. Research, leadership, and clinical training are combined in an individualized 18-month program designed to lead to a successful academic career. Total time in residency is 6 years.
Candidates must demonstrate exceptional academic and research achievements, and be committed to a career in academic head and neck surgery.
