Educational and Clinical Resources

The primary reference used in our didactic sessions will be Pediatric Otolaryngology by Bluestone and Stool. A copy of this text will be in the fellow workspace and it is also available online through the Annette and Irwin Eskind Biomedical Library (EBL). The EBL is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Additional books will be available in faculty offices to which the fellow will have access. Articles for the monthly journal clubs will be available through the medical library.

The fellow will be encouraged to perform literature searches through the EBL. Online courses are available for IRB training. Each fellow will be expected to complete a publication-worthy project at the completion of their training. We have an electronic medical record (EMR) system that is well positioned to perform patient data analysis for chart reviews. There are weekly statistical clinics in the medical center complex where the fellow can seek statistical assistance, if needed.

Each week the fellow will be provided with a minimum of a half-day for academic duties. The clinical volume is sufficient to meet the needs of the fellow. The primary pediatric attendings will see an average of 10,000 outpatients and perform more than 2,500 surgeries in a one-year period, with other department members managing another 700 cases.

Assignments and duties

Prior to commencement of the fellowship, each fellow will receive a calendar of their duties, expectations, and assignments. There will be a specific clinic, OR, and lecture schedule to which the fellow will adhere. Expectations, as outlined to the fellow, will describe the competencies in pediatric otolaryngology necessary to complete the fellowship. Specifically, the fellow will be provided with a hard copy and an electronic copy of the expected patient care, medical knowledge, professionalism, practice-based learning, interpersonal skills, and system-based practice requirements.
