About Us

The Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery has undergone considerable change while maintaining its core values. The Department has grown in size and academic scope. We now have 13 faculty members at three hospital sites, providing the full spectrum of subspecialty care.

Our energetic faculty and residents epitomize clinical-academic medicine and are highly active in clinical and translational research.

As an academic Department, we have always valued above all else, our wonderful surgical training program and our exceptional residents.

We are proud of our alumni who were once our students and we remain grateful to those alumni who were our teachers. Our reputation as a training program remains as strong as ever, and we are privileged to get the "cream of the crop" in the Canadian residency match year after year.

Recently, we received the highest praise from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons external review while being awarded full accreditation as a surgical residency.
