Division of Laryngology Laryngology & Voice Disorders Fellowship

Laryngology & Voice Disorders Fellowship

NYU School of Medicine offers one year-long fellowship in laryngology and voice disorders each year in our Department of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery. Our fellows are otolaryngologists who wish to refine their skills in diagnosing and managing laryngological disease and in advanced operative techniques in laryngology and bronchoesophagology.

Laryngology and voice disorder fellows receive advanced training with an experienced team of laryngologists, speech–language pathologists, voice specialists, and laryngeal surgeons. Through our partnerships in the performing arts community, fellows develop collaborative and multidisciplinary approaches to caring for vocal performers.

Laryngology Training Experience

As a fellow, you work alongside faculty from the Division of Laryngology at NYU Langone’s Voice Center, gaining experience in a variety of laryngologic procedures. These include transnasal esophagoscopy, flexible and rigid videolaryngostroboscopy, transcervical and transoral injection laryngoplasty, and potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) laser ablation for benign vocal fold lesions, including papillomas.

Your surgical education takes place at NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Center East 38th StreetTisch HospitalKimmel Pavilion, NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, and Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone. You learn phonomicrosurgical approaches to treating benign vocal fold lesions and early glottic cancer; gain experience in using KTP and carbon dioxide lasers in ablation and resection; practice endoscopic and open approaches to treating airway stenosis and paralytic dysphonia; and learn how to manage dysphagia surgically. You also collaborate with speech–language pathologists to assimilate acoustic and aerodynamic data into patient treatment plans.

Laryngology and voice disorder fellows are not on call but do cover consultation services at NYU Langone–affiliated hospitals.

Research Opportunities for Fellows

Laryngology and voice disorder fellows are expected to complete one major clinical research project to present at a national meeting and submit for publication. You are expected to contribute significantly to the Division of Laryngology’s publication opportunities and are responsible for coordinating medical student and resident laryngology research.

Although the fellowship experience typically lasts one year, a two-year option is available for candidates who wish to pursue a more extensive research experience.

Teaching Opportunities for Fellows

Laryngology and voice disorder fellows assume teaching responsibilities for residents and students at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue and the VA NY Harbor Healthcare System.

This fellowship is not yet accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
