About the Department

Welcome to the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (O-HNS) at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). Our services and programs are unsurpassed within the state and region with MUSC consistently ranked as the best hospital in South Carolina and our department nationally ranked at #23 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals for Ear, Nose, and Throat (2023); #9 Doximity Best Otolaryngology Residency Program (2023); and #10 National Institutes of Health funding to O-HNS (latest data, 2023). These external rankings validate what we inherently know – that our people make us who we are.

Our people include nationally recognized faculty, most of whom have subspecialty training, hold leadership positions in national medical societies, author textbooks and peer-reviewed articles in high-impact journals, and are invited speakers nationally and internationally. Our faculty attracts outstanding trainees including twenty residents (four residents per year x five years of training), six fellows (head & neck surgical oncology, rhinology, otology/neurology, pediatric O-HNS, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, and laryngology), and over a dozen clinical research fellows (undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, and post-doctoral). Such a fertile environment facilitates innovative discoveries that have a direct impact on patients and influence the way in which medicine is practiced locally, regionally, and nationally.

If you find yourself in the low country of South Carolina, I invite you to stop by and see what we’re all about.
