Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College. Our outstanding faculty provide the full spectrum of modern Otolaryngologic care, from pediatrics to geriatrics, and including the latest advances in technology and evidence-based practice. We are fortunate to practice in one of the top-rated academic hospitals in the USA, and the top-rated hospital in New York City: NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

Our clinical programs all continue to grow and prosper. We sponsor several highly-rated and well-attended CME and CEU programs every year. Department faculty have produced 5 new textbooks in the last 2 years, in addition to dozens of book chapters, peer-reviewed publications, and presentations at national meetings. We are fortunate that many of our faculty are national leaders in the specialty and in subspecialty societies. Our Department is also the administrative home for the Center for the Performing Artist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, which is becoming an important resource for the large performing artist community in New York City.

Together with Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, we sponsor an outstanding residency training program in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. With rotations at Columbia, Weill Cornell, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, our residents receive comprehensive training and exposure to an enormous variety of patients and faculty.

Thank you for your interest in our Department.

Sincerely,
Michael G. Stewart MD, MPH
Professor and Chairman
