Otolaryngology Fellowship

Research

Each fellow is assigned an office space with a dedicated computer and with internet access via DS3 connection.  CNMC offers access to MEDLINE searches and full-text articles on OVID and MD Consult databases. CNMC library has 12 computers and 2 medical librarians to help with literature searches and retrieval of articles, including the use of interlibrary loans. Pediatric otolaryngology fellows also have access to the George Washington University School of Medicine library.

The pediatric otolaryngology fellows participate actively in clinical research, often as the principal investigator.  They submit the IRB protocol, carry out the data collection and analyses, and write the manuscript under the supervision of the attending faculty.   Due to constraints of the one-year fellowship program there is no protected time for basic science research rotations, and, as such, the fellows in the have not actively participated in basic science research. 

Fellows however have been productive in clinical research.  In the past 5 years there have been over a dozen presentations by fellows at national meetings, and 10 publications led by fellows in national peer-reviewed journals.  There is extensive extramural and intramural grant funding within the department, including two active R21 grants from the NIH, and one active grant from the Flight Attendants Medical Research Initiative.  These grant account for account for approximately $750K for extramural research support to the division.
