Overview

Clerkship

UW and visiting students may elect to take either a 2-week or 4-week clerkship rotating at any of the affiliated hospitals (Children's Hospital and Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center, Pacific Medical Center, Veteran's Administration, University of Washington Medical Center).

Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (OTO-HNS) encompasses both medical and surgical management of the head and neck. The field includes all aspects of the airway, digestive tract, sinus disease, ear disease, head and neck cancer, and reconstructive surgery. The clerkships offer exposure to all areas of OTO-HNS. Specific emphasis can be selected by the student with their choice of a particular site of practice. The 2 week clerkship is designed for students who want an introduction to the field, while the 4 week clerkship is designed for students who want in depth exposure to specialty.

Rotations at UW Hospitals (UWMC, Harborview, Seattle Children’s Hospital, and the Veteran’s Hospital) offer an exposure to subspecialty practices. Rotations at non-UW Hospitals offer a more general practice experience.

Requirements

Completion of the HuBio series. The clerkship is open to 3rd and 4th year students. Medicine and/or Surgery required pre-requisite clerkships. Exceptions can be made for special circumstances of a student’s schedule.
