The M.D. program instruction of the Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery is designed to acquaint students with all diseases treated by the modern otolaryngologist. Instruction is given in the methods of examining the ear, nose and throat in the outpatient department. Audiology is included so that the student may properly classify deafness in prescribing appropriate therapy.

Head and neck, and plastic and reconstructive surgery as related to otolaryngology are included in the instructional program. Observation and, at times, assistance at surgical operations offer additional learning opportunities to students. In general, the program stresses the correlation of ear, nose and throat problems to the entire curriculum in medicine and surgery.
