Otolaryngology/ENT Medical Student Interest Group

The ENT Medical Student Interest Group has two main goals:

  1. To promote awareness of ENT as a specialty for UBC medical students
  2. To generate interest in ENT as a career choice for UBC medical students

The ENT Medical Student Interest Group has two main initiatives to achieve these goals:

  1. Job shadowing an ENT in the OR
  2. Research opportunities in ENT

Below is a list of ENT surgeons who have kindly agreed to allow UBC medical students to shadow them in the OR.  UBC medical students are invited to contact them to arrange a mutually convenient date and time.

Please note, job shadowing is on hold until further notice due to COVID-19 precautions.
