8th Annual Otolaryngology Update in New York City

President’s Room - 9th Floor New York Athletic Club 180 Central Park South New York, NY 10019

This is our 8th Annual Update in Otolaryngology course; the host department has rotated between Columbia and Weill Cornell and all Updates have been affiliated with New York Presbyterian Hospital. Otolaryngologist/Head and Neck Surgeons practice both the medical and surgical aspects of our specialty. Advances can come rapidly from different areas. Most educational courses focus on a particular part of the specialty, such as sinus surgery, otology, or facial plastic surgery. Therefore, there is a strong need for a comprehensive update course in the New York City area. This course will allow the participants to receive a cogent but comprehensive update and review on all aspects of the specialty, at a single course. Similar courses are held in other parts of the country, and are highly-rated and well-attended. This course is designed for practicing otolaryngologists and residents in training nationally.
