Residency Application Information

The OHSU Otolaryngology residency program is a five to seven year program. Residents in the traditional track complete a one year PGY-1 year in surgery, followed by four years of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery training. Residents admitted to the research track will have one year in surgery, three years in Otolaryngology and, following the PGY-4 year, will complete a two year research program. After the research training is complete, the resident will return to the residency program for the final year of training. The OHSU program participates in the Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Matching Program. Interviews for admission to the program in 2017 will be held on November 11, 2016, December 12, 2016, and January 30, 2017. Candidates being considered for interviews will be contacted starting in October.

Residents are selected based upon their preparedness, abilities, aptitudes, academic credentials, communication skills, and personal qualities such as motivation and integrity.  OHSU's residency and fellowship training programs must not discriminate with regard to gender, race, age, sexual orientation, religion, color, national origin, disability or veteran status.  Applications will be accepted only through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Services). If you have any questions about ERAS, please contact the Dean's office at your school of medicine. Your application will be considered complete when it includes the CAF (common application form), the Dean's letter from your medical school, letters of recommendation from at least three additional physicians, medical school grade transcript, a copy of all USMLE board score results, a photo, and a personal statement. Your personal statement should include a brief autobiography, your expectations of a residency program, and a statement of your future career goals. In addition, applicants must be legally able to work in the US, or eligible to obtain work authorization. The deadline for applications is September 26, 2016, excepting the Dean's letter (which is required, but not released until Oct. 1), and applications will be reviewed in October. Interviews will be offered in October for the interview dates listed above.

The program begins July 1 and ends June 30 for each year of the residency. The three applicants who are accepted into the residency program each year will be notified by the matching program followed by a telephone call and correspondence from the department chairman.

All applicants are requested to keep the department up to date with changes in addresses and telephone numbers. For more information about the application process for the OHSU Otolaryngology residency program, email .
