Why Otolaryngology?

ENT cares for the most social aspects of our being – listening, speaking, and all the ways we communicate with others. Social connections are important for us to live our best lives and I want to help facilitate that. I also love the wide variety that we get to see every day – acute and chronic, medicine and surgery, kids and older folks, and lots more. 

Why UNC?

Strong, well-rounded clinical experience with early operating opportunities. There are lots of possibilities for research in all areas of ENT if you want them!
