Welcome From the Director

The training program accepts one resident each year selected from among hundreds of qualified applicants.

About The Program

Rush Otolaryngologists treat approximately 1,100 adult and pediatric inpatients each year at Rush University Medical Center addressing conditions that range from head and neck cancer to severe hearing loss.

How to Apply

The Otolaryngology Residency Program participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Once the ERAS application is complete with personal statement, medical school transcript, Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE), three letters of recommendation, USMLE Step I score, and USMLE Step II CK score if available, it is reviewed by a subcommittee appointed by the Program Director consisting of attending physicians and residents. Interviews are granted by invitation only. Qualified applicants must be able to secure temporary and eventually permanent licensure in the state of Illinois.
