Rhinology Fellows


The Rhinology and Skull Base Surgery Fellowship first began on July 1, 2011. Co-directed by Drs. Adam Zanation and Charles Ebert, this one-year fellowship program provides comprehensive training in the medical and surgical management of sinonasal inflammatory disease, anterior and central skull base lesions (endoscopic and/or open management), allergic disease, and orbital pathology. Emphasis is also placed on research that ranges from basic science translational work to clinical trials. Our goal is to provide the highest-quality, broad-based training that will impart fellows with the knowledge and expertise to develop a successful tertiary Rhinology/skull base surgery practice.

I was fortunate to be accepted as the first Rhinology/Anterior Skull Base Fellow. It’s an understatement to say that this is one of the greatest honors of my life and my dream fellowship. Being the first fellow is exciting and we could not ask for better teachers than Dr. Senior, Dr. Zanation, and Dr. Ebert. Our Rhinology faculty are among my heroes in Otolaryngology, and it is incredible to be able to train under them for my fellowship. After residency I plan to have an academic career in rhinology and anterior skull base surgery. My specific interests are molecular and immunologic factors involved in chronic sinusitis and the tumor biology and genetic alterations in rare tumors such as esthesioneuroblastoma and sinonasal melanoma.
