Research Publications

Basic, translational and clinical research opportunities are available for ENT residents and medical school students with an interest in otolaryngology.  Our faculty offers mentorship in a variety of specific areas of research interest and collaborate with other investigators at Saint Louis University and around the country.

Residents in their PGY2-5 years are expected to complete research that results in an abstract for submission to a national meeting and presentation at the annual Residents' Research Day.
