The Rhinology Division at MUSC has offered a one year fellowship since 2006. This year provides fellows advanced, focused training in surgical techniques, clinical management, research opportunities and educational events in order to prepare them for a career in academic rhinology. The practice includes both adult and pediatric patients. The surgical focus is upon revision or tertiary inflammatory disease, endoscopic skull base pathology, orbital disorders and other rhinologic conditions, such as Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia and rheumatologic diseases. Fellows also have opportunities to learn management of allergic disorders to include skin testing, vial preparation for subcutaneous immunotherapy and sublingual immunotherapy. Other members of the department offer training in rhinoplasty and open skull base if that is desired.
Academic pursuits are required. This includes supervising medical students and residents in the design and execution of clinical, translational and basic science research projects and presentations. These research interests are tailored to the background and interests of each fellow.
