Overview

Otolaryngology is the medical and surgical specialty that provides care for persons suffering from illnesses of the head and neck. Otolaryngology was one of the first “specialties” that came into existence. It did so because of the special training and skills that were required to see recesses within the nose, throat and ears. In more recent times, otolaryngology has evolved into subdisciplines and each of the areas are well represented in the University of British Columbia’s Division of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.

The division’s principal basic research laboratories in auditory physiology are located at the UBC site of the Vancouver Hospital and Health Science Centre. The Provincial Voice Care Resource Program and Pacific Voice Clinic are situated at the Vancouver General Hospital site.
