Medical Students

Fourth year medical students participating in the Combined Otolaryngology elective (OTO 5425) may elect to spend one week of their 4-week rotation at the Voice Center.  For additional information on elective rotations for medical students continue here.


Each PGY-4 resident rotates at the Voice Center for a 10-week block.  During this time, the resident learns detailed laryngeal physiology and anatomy as well as the principles guiding medical and surgical treatment of patients with voice disorders.  Specific goals and objectives for this rotation (including laryngoscopic assessment skills and microsurgical techniques) may be found in the Resident Manual


The University of Pittsburgh Voice Center, strives to provide the most comprehensive Laryngology fellowship available to otolaryngologists in this country.
