Basic Scheduling Principles for Otolaryngology:
Most decisions regarding the application to Otolaryngology Residency programs must be made early in your Medical School experience. While the match system for Oto is now in March along with the other specialities, the Oto application, including letters of recommendation, must be completed by latesummer of the M4 year. Many programs still interview in the late fall and early winter. Thus, the more typical options used by students are as follows:
1. Students should rotate on Otolaryngology early in their fourth year. They should also identify a faculty mentor who can help them navigate the application process and advise them on the quality of the various programs.
2. If there is a specific program you are interested in, an early rotation prior to October/November may help your chances in the match. Resist, however, the temptation of doing multiple away rotations as this will dilute your overall medical education and may ultimately limit your options in Otolaryngology.
