There are multiple lifestyle and education benefits for the OTOHNS residency at The University of Kansas. Residents receive a competitive stipend, (including annual raises and cost of living increases), as well as health and disability insurance. Kansas City offers a relatively low cost of living; due to this fact, the majority of our current residents own their homes.
Incoming residents receive the two-volume Bailey's textbook, Head and Neck Surgery-Otolaryngology; enrollment in the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery's Home Study Course (PGY-3 and PGY-4 years); and subscriptions to Archives of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. Also provided are white coats, KUMC parking, medical licenses, and a head mirror. Both KUMC and VAMC OTOHNS services have cell phones for on-call use for those who do not have their own cell phone.
