Program Director Welcome

Phillip LoSavio, MD, MS


I am pleased to introduce you to the Rush University Otolaryngology Residency Program. Our program continues a long tradition of training graduates with the highest skill level, critical independent decision-making skills and a sincere commitment to the well-being of their patients. It is an exciting and inspiring time to be a part of Rush’s growing Department of Otolaryngology. The training program recently expanded its complement to two residents per year. We have a full complement of sub-specialty faculty dedicated to working with our resident team to provide the highest-quality care. The department’s clinical programs are at the leading edge of otolaryngology, including anterior and lateral skull base surgery, facial nerve reanimation, advanced head and neck oncologic care, hypoglossal nerve stimulation for OSA, a comprehensive pediatric upper aerodigestive clinic, and advanced ambulatory management of laryngotracheal disorders. 

My core mission as program director centers on training confident and skilled head and neck surgeons with a well-rounded foundation in research, patient safety and quality improvement, and medical education. Residents who are eager to be partners with our team who share Rush’s core values of innovation, collaboration, accountability, respect and excellence will thrive in our program. We promise state-of-the-art and innovative training grounded in the principles of quality patient care.

I would encourage you to consider scheduling an elective clerkship if you’d like to get a closer look at Rush otolaryngology.
