Ear, Nose, and Throat Student Interest Group

The object of the ENT SIG is to support and advise students interested in otolaryngology as a vocation with an emphasis on preparing students for their career interest in ear, nose, and throat medicine and surgery. As a function of the group, upper classmen will be able to pass on advice and experiences to future classes to aid students in preparation for matching into ENT. Students going into other medical disciplines are welcome to attend meetings, where invited lecturers will provide knowledge about the field and expose them to the diversity of this field.
