Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery
As a neurotology fellow as Mass. Eye and Ear, all clinical and surgical work will be performed under the supervision of one of nine preceptors, including six board-certified neurotologists. Neurotology training is provided in the operating room, inpatient service, outpatient clinic, and during the Skull Base Conference.
Surgical training and experience is offered in:
- Mastoid tympanoplasty
- Acoustic neuroma surgery (translabyrinthine, suboccipital, and middle fossa approaches)
- Selective vestibular neurectomy
- Cochlear implantation
- Facial nerve decompression
- Temporal bone resection
- Other otologic and neurotologic procedures
The fellow is primarily assigned to all neurotology operative cases and, when available, may participate in any otology cases not covered by a senior otolaryngology resident. Practical experience in vestibular and audiological testing and rehabilitation is provided through the clinical vestibular laboratory, audiology department, and outpatient clinics. Cranial nerve monitoring experience is gained in the operating room. The fellow will have a commitment to the teaching of both residents and medical students.
This fellowship program has been accredited by the ACGME since 1999.

The fellowship in neurotology is designed to provide advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment, both medical and surgical, of diseases and disorders affecting the auditory system, vestibular system, facial nerve, temporal bone, lateral skull base, and related head and neck structures, and to provide opportunities to perform clinical and basic research in the field of neurotology.
Candidates must be recent graduates of an ACGME-accredited otolaryngology–head and neck surgery residency training program. The fellowship seeks to attract individuals who aspire to a full-time academic position in neurotology.
Fellows are encouraged to participate in clinical and/or basic science research. One day per week of dedicated research time is provided with additional time available depending upon the clinical workload.
All primary otology faculty are actively involved in clinical and/or basic science research. In addition, numerous opportunities for research collaboration and mentors are available through the Eaton-Peabody Laboratories and Jenks Vestibular Laboratories. The temporal bone collection at Mass. Eye and Ear is also one of the most extensively studied and well-documented collections in the world.
