For decades the Department of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery has trained medical students and residents. The first chairman of the Division of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery was Newton D. Fischer. Dr. Fischer's enduring emphasis on medical students and resident education, as well as research continues to shape the philosophy of the department to this day. Clinical practice within this field involves the medical and surgical diagnosis and management of very common to very rare diseases such as treatment of the neck in squamous cell carcinoma, chronic rhinosinusituis, and auditory neuropathy. Novel research and emerging technologies are changing how these disease processes are managed, including endoscopic approaches and external approaches. This meeting will provide new information and surgical techniques for the practicing Otolaryngologist/Head and Neck Surgeon.
