Department History

As part of one of the first medical colleges in the United States, the Department of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery has a long history of providing excellence in education, research and patient care since its inception in 1878. Our department offers medical students extensive exposure to the specialty, which encompasses the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the head and neck, including the ears, nose and sinuses, oral cavity, larynx, pharynx and other disorders in the neck. State-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical techniques are offered in aesthetic and reconstructive facial plastic surgery, the treatment of head and neck neoplasms, the treatment of otologic and skull base disease, care of voice disorders, and in all other subspecialties of otolaryngology.

Patient Care

Drexel University College of Medicine does not provide ENT patient care. Clinical care is provided through Philadelphia Ear, Nose and Throat Associates and the practices of other department faculty members.
