About Laryngology Fellowship
Laryngology is a subspecialty of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery encompassing a field of knowledge that deals with disorders of voice, airway, and swallowing. The laryngologist has special expertise in the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to problems in these areas and participates in the advancement of knowledge through clinical and/or basic science research. Laryngology is a recognized area within Otolaryngology training programs, and further postgraduate fellowship training is an option for those Otolaryngologists wishing to further their education in the field.
Specialized postgraduate training in Laryngology should allow exposure to the full range of Laryngology, recognizing that each program will have different emphases and focus on certain areas more than others. Areas of emphases should include: neurolaryngology, professional voice care, neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the larynx, swallowing disorders, and disorders of the upper airway.
The American Laryngological Association, the sponsoring
organization for Laryngology fellowships, has requested that the National
Resident Matching Program (NRMP) conduct a match program. Please refer
to the Schedule of Dates for
the specific Laryngology Match dates.
Specialty Matches conducted by the NRMP do not provide centralized services for the application process. Candidates are required to apply directly to the fellowship program that interests them.
For more information about Laryngology, please visit the official Web site of the American Laryngological Association at www.alahns.org.
Before registering, please review the SMS Match Participation Agreement. By registering with the NRMP and submitting a certified rank order list (ROL), applicants and programs agree to abide by the outcome of the match. Failure to do so is a breach of the Agreement and violators may be subject to penalties under the NRMP's Violations Policy. Both applicants and programs must follow the cardinal rule that neither must ask the other to make a commitment before the submission of ROLs. It is to be expected that one may express a high level of interest in the other; however, it is not acceptable for one to ask the other how one will be ranked.
Any verbal or written contract between an applicant and a program prior to the submission of the ROL is a material violation of the SMS Match Participation Agreement, and violators may be subject to penalties under the NRMP's Violations Policy. The final preference of program directors and applicants as reflected on the submitted ROLs will determine the offering of positions and the placement of applicants.
