The greatest strengths of our program are the faculty and residents. Wherever your interests lie within otolaryngology- be it research, national leadership, patent law, etc. - you will have the full support of the department. Having moved to New Orleans from the North East, Tulane provided me with a second family.

I feel extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend Tulane for a post-baccalaureate, medical school, and now residency.  The supportive staff, close-knit residents, and the abundance of research opportunities were just a few reasons why Tulane was my top choice!

Tulane Otolaryngology not only provides each of us with a unique patient population, it also provided us with great opportunities, and support from faculty to help each of us become the best physicians we can possibly be.

The Tulane faculty are dedicated, fun to work with, and excited to teach, the residents are one big family, the patients are extremely diverse, and the city is one of a kind!

Tulane ENT possesses everything I was looking for in a residency program: a tradition of institutional excellence, a supportive faculty representing all fields of otolaryngology, enthusiastic and welcoming residents, and the backdrop of an iconic and culturally diverse city that encompasses all aspects of healthcare and personal needs.

Tulane's Otolaryngology program gives me the opportunity to learn my profession from mentors and peers who I am always comfortable approaching and who I enjoy being around.   I am proud to be a part of Tulane's ongoing commitment to decreasing barriers to care for the underserved in New Orleans.

The Tulane ENT department is a large part of the reason why I chose to pursue a career in otolaryngology. The faculty's commitment to teaching the residents and passion for their work are an inspiration. These qualities, as well as the close-knit atmosphere among the residents, made Tulane an obvious choice for me.
