Holding a Ph.D. in Health Policy and Management and a Master of Public Health degree, Kevin Sykes is part of our multidisciplinary team of researchers working within the department to advance the care of patients in Otolaryngology. While much of his time is spent working collaboratively on clinical research with the faculty and residents in the department, his research program includes a focus on healthcare delivery for the medically underserved and the impact of non-clinical factors on health outcomes.

Dr. Sykes works internationally to develop effective and efficient models for delivering high quality healthcare services to marginalized communities in low-resource settings. Dr. Sykes is the Chair of the Advocacy and Policy Committee for the International Health Section of the American Public Health Association (APHA) and was recently elected as a Governing Councilor for APHA.  

Domestically, Dr. Sykes develops projects that aim to understand the challenges facing patients with complex diagnoses and treatment plans. Looking for ways to improve the care we provide by focusing on patient-centered outcomes, he designs studies that examine social and cultural barriers to the best possible results for these patients.  

Dr. Sykes also has more than 10 years of experience developing, designing, and managing clinical research for our department in his role as the Director of Clinical Research.
