Fourth Year

The fourth-year resident is at Westchester Medical Center (three months), New York Eye and Ear Infirmary (three months) and the Academic Rotation (three months). The remaining three-month period is set aside for the research rotation. At New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, the fourth-year resident assumes a more supervisory role in the clinics and in the Otology Service. Completing the fourth-year course in the temporal bone laboratory further enhances the resident's surgical skills. At the fourth-year level, the resident is expected to perform these otologic procedures: tympanoplasty, tympanoplasty with mastoidectomy, basic ossicular chain reconstruction and stapedotomy. The resident assists in other otologic procedures. The fourth-year resident is the service chief at Westchester Medical Center. He or she performs major and complex surgical procedures, such as composite resection, radical neck dissection, parathyroidectomy, pharyngolaryngectomy, myocutaneous and free flaps, and all major otologic procedures. He or she first-assists on major neurotologic and base-of-skull procedures. The Academic Rotation is divided between Mount Sinai Beth Israel and New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, and consist of assigned rotations with Dr. Robert Della Rocca on Oculoplastic and Orbital Surgery, Dr. Roy Holliday on Head and Neck Radiology, Dr. Bruce Wenig on Surgical Pathology, Drs. Steven Schaefer or Michael Pitman on Laryngology and Dr. Milton Waner on Pediatric Head and Neck Surgery.
