Duke Otolaryngology residents are a close group, and we enjoy making the most of our time together. Some of the activities we enjoy as part of the program include:
- An annual resident welcome, in which faculty and residents gather to get to know each other.
- Our holiday party with the entire department.
- A Spring gathering following the in-service exam. Prior events have included activities such as bowling.
- Monthly journal club meetings located at various local restaurants around Durham and Chapel Hill. Topics are arranged based on various sub-specialties within otolaryngology.
Journal club consists of monthly meetings located at various local restaurants around Durham and Chapel Hill. Topics are arranged based on various sub-specialties within otolaryngology, and from this 3-4 articles are selected. These articles include landmark papers and up-to-date literature regarding a particular theme. Articles are presented by residents and discussed as a group with faculty. These sessions provide a unique opportunity stay current with newly developed procedures or reviews.
