Objectives: Medical students rotate at OLOLRMC in Baton Rouge and at Children’s Hospital in New Orleans. We offer a four-week course with clinical experience in all areas of otorhinolaryngology. The course includes the diagnosis and treatment of head and neck and skull base tumors and diseases, otologic diseases, advanced sinus disease, sleep medicine, voice and swallowing disorders and pediatric diseases. Students also have the opportunity to work with speech and language pathologists in the care of our patients.

Means of Interpretation: Activities are similar to those of an intern. Students participate in in-patient and out-patient care and assist in operative otorhinolaryngology.  Students must engage in self instruction and present cases at grand rounds.

Method of Evaluation: Student evaluations are based entirely upon work performance and level of application during the clinical rotation period. Otorhinolaryngology residents and faculty complete the Department of Surgery evaluation form for each student at the end of the rotation.
