ENT Interest Group
The DUCOM ENT Interest Group serves to assist medical students in exploring Otorhinolaryngology. An ENT surgeon provides comprehensive medical and surgical care for patients of all ages with diseases and disorders that affect the ears, nose, throat, the respiratory and upper alimentary systems, and related structures of the head and neck. The specialty encompasses cosmetic facial reconstruction, surgery of benign and malignant tumors of the head and neck, and the diagnosis and management of allergic, sinus, laryngeal, thyroid, and esophageal disorders. Our group hopes to increase the exposure of students to this vast and interesting field and provide opportunities to better understand it. We seek to do this by connecting students with ENT specialists and sub-specialists for shadowing and research opportunities, holding a lecture series, and furthering the interests of students in this competitive field through other informative events.
