Why Otolaryngology?

I had several influential mentors over the years who were not only amazing humans but also otolaryngologist. I also love the anatomy of the head and neck and the creativity that is required in Facial Plastics.

Why UNC?

UNC offered me the opportunity to work closely with four dynamic Facial Plastics attendings and receive a broad training in the field. They also have a proven history of preparing their fellows for a successful academic career.
