During your experience
in ENT there will be 2 types of teaching sessions. The formal sessions
are mandatory for each student, and the informal sessions are not.
These are, however, interesting sessions that will supplement your
knowledge of otolaryngology and the residency program at Dalhousie.
- Orientation session
- Five lectures by Staff
Otolaryngologists (spread through the surgery block)
- Grand Rounds (Wednesday
- Multidisciplinary Rounds
- Cummings Rounds (Wednesday
- Resident teaching seminars
- Journal Club (monthly)
You will also be provided
with a detailed schedule of clinics and ORs that you are to attend
throughout the week.
Rotation schedules must
be checked for the formal sessions that you will be scheduled to attend.
- Otolaryngologic and
neck space infections
- Hoarseness, dysphagia,
and globus pharyngeus
- Hearing loss, dizziness,
and otitis media

Clerks will not be required
to cover call. If the student wishes to join the residents in covering
call, he/she may arrange it with the chief resident.
