The NUHS Otolaryngology Residency started in 2011 and is now in the 7th year. Two intake of residents have completed their training and are working as associate consultants in the NUHS cluster. Continuity in leadership of the programme and the clinical learning environment has led to a strong platform for residency education. We currently have 20 full time faculty staff with expertise in Head & Neck Surgery, Rhinology, Otology, Skull base Surgery and Paediatric Otolaryngology.

The emphasis in the programme is to train our residents to be excellent clinicians and be future leaders in research and education. All residents participate in scholarly activities that include clinical research, quality improvement and medical education. Residents have opportunities to take up appointments with the NUS medical undergraduate school to conduct teaching and undergo faculty development in medical education.

Within the NUHS cluster are National University Hospital and Ng Teng Fong General Hospital. All residents rotate to these two training sites. In addition, there is a 3-month cross cluster rotations with Tan Tock Seng Hospital or Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.
