Otolaryngology Resdency Program

Welcome to the home page for the Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery Residency at the University of New Mexico. We are very proud of our program and continually strive to create the best possible learning environment for our residents. Camaraderie and our sense of group purpose are the hallmarks of this residency program.

We are a relatively small program, now accepting two resident positions per year, and as such, offer unparalleled opportunities for individual teaching and attention. We encourage interested medical students to join us for an away rotation. Applications accepted here for international students. Thank you for your interest in our program.

Our Mission:

  • Provide the highest standard of care to our patients.
  • To train and educate clinical scholars who share an interest in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and related disciplines.
  • To conduct research to promote greater understanding of the field of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
  • To embody academic excellence in all endeavors: clinical, educational, research and administrative.
