Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery
Courses      Clerkships

This is an advanced clerkship designed to give the senior medical student an intense exposure to the field of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. Students will be expected to accomplish the following goals: (1) assume a high level of patient care responsibility, functioning essentially at an intern level (but with supervision from the residents and faculty); (2) strengthen their clinical and procedural skills and; (3) function as an integral member of the otolaryngology team. Students will be stationed at Stanford Medical Center, but may also be scheduled to rotate at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and/or the Palo Alto VA hospital. Students will be expected to round on all of the patients on the service to which they are assigned. While on the head & neck service, where they are likely to be scheduled for half the course, they will be permitted to perform selected simple procedures. The remainder of the rotations may include: laryngology, pediatric, otology, plastics, sinus and sleep surgery. Students will be expected to participate in all clinics and ORs on the services in which they are rotating. Small group didactic sessions with other students are offered several times a week. Students also attend resident education sessions held on Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons, as well as grand rounds on Thursday evenings. Visiting students must have completed an Otolaryngology rotation prior to Stanford subinternship. Due to overwhelming demand for this course, visiting students are required to submit: a medical school transcript, USMLE scores, and a brief, one paragraph statement of interest to Luisa Antonio at Visiting students will be informed of acceptance at least one month prior to the desired rotation. Please note that completing a Sub-I does not guarantee a residency interview with the department.
