International Outreach

The Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery has long supported medical work overseas starting in Nepal and Kyrgyzstan in the 1990's. Over the last decade, the Department has supported participation from multiple faculty and residents in medical mission trips to Mexico, the Philippines, Africa, and Guatemala. The Department helped found the mission to Antigua, Guatemala in 2004, which has become an annual tradition involving over 70 participants, completing an average of 80 surgeries and over 600 patient visits in just six days.

It is the goal of the Department for every willing resident and fellow to participate in a medical mission trip during the senior years of residency or fellowship training, with the expectation of continued involvement after graduation.
