Advanced Otology Fellowship Consortium

The Advanced Otology Fellowship Consortium has organized this website to improve access to information of the one-year Advanced Otology fellowships.  These one-year fellowships are not found in the sfmatch, and are available for graduates of Otolaryngology Residencies who are with board-eligible or board-certified in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.

For more information on the individual fellowships, browse the programs at the top of the page.  To subscribe to the email list for future updates on program openings, sign up in the right-hand side panel.  For questions, please feel free to contact us at info@otologyfellowship.com.

These one-year fellowships are not accredited in Neurotology and Skull-base Surgery.  Additional accreditation is not required by most hospitals for advanced otologic surgeries, as they fall within the scope of general Otolaryngology, whereas accreditation is increasingly required to perform skull base tumor surgery.  Two-year accredited Neurotology and Skull Bass surgeries are often designed to prepare graduates for an academic Neurotology career.  For more information on 2-year accredited Neurotology and Skull-base Surgery, visit the sfmatch website.
