The NUHS Otolaryngology Residency Programme aims to train dedicated residents. Our faculty has a strong academic and research background, which enhances our programme. Our team of specialists has undergone post-specialist training in North America and Europe in their sub-specialty fields. Our programme curriculum gives a wide exposure to various aspects of otology, rhinology, head & neck surgery and paediatric otolaryngology. Residents in the programme rotate to NUH, TTSH and Jurong Health

The programme provides residents with training in research skills and allocates a dedicated research rotation. Our faculty mentors them through a project of their choice. An elective period is catered for sub-specialty training and will allow residents to increase exposure in an area of their choice. This elective can be taken within NUHS or outside the cluster. An elective in a training hospital outside Singapore can be done, subject to the programme director's approval. Medical education training is available to residents who aim to be clinician educators. Residents are involved in education in the NUS medical undergraduate programme.

Our program is well balanced in providing clinical, surgical, research and academic training.
