Train Future Leaders in the Field of Neurotology

The mission of the Neurotology Fellowship Program at Case Western Reserve University/University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center is to train future leaders through our Fellowship program. This is two-year Neurotology Fellowship Program which allows fellows to gain experience in diagnosing and treating the full range of adult and pediatric otologic and lateral skull base disorders. Fellows receive hands-on training in the surgical management of neurotologic conditions and diseases, using both microscopic and endoscopic techniques, as well as having access to specialized labs to hone their skills.

The Neurotology program at University Hospitals is recognized as a regional and national leader in the comprehensive care of hearing, balance and skull base disorders. The Cochlear Implant Center of Excellence provides surgical and follow up care for more than 150 new patients per year. The UH Cochlear Implant program boasts 30 years of experience and more than 1800 legacy patients. Our multidisciplinary skull base team provides care for the most complex lesions of the lateral skull base from vestibular schwannomas, paragangliomas, facial nerve disorders, petroclival lesions and more. Fellows are exposed to all approaches to the posterior fossa during their training. The Skull Base team consists of neurotology, neurosurgery, radiation oncology, neuroradiology, facial plastic surgery, neurology, vestibular rehabilitation, audiology, and speech language pathology. The neurotology fellow has daily interactions with the various members of these robust multidisciplinary teams.

The fellow will be in charge of the otology resident team and will be responsible for seeing the in-patient service patients on weekdays during hospitalization. This will allow for continuity of care for the patient and allow the fellow to participate in the post-operative recovery period as well

In addition, fellows engage in research and attend conferences to further explore the various aspects of neurotologic care and the intricacies of a scientific and academic career.

Two Year Program

We accept one fellow every two years of the program.

Our Program Aims

  • To graduate fellows with clinical expertise in the full breadth of neurotology and complex otology
  • To place 75% of our fellows into academic careers following completion of training
  • To educate our fellows in the methods of scientific inquiry promoting life-long learning, quality improvement and research as an integral part of their later careers
  • To develop in our fellows actionable wellness practices in which they engage consistently.

Innovation and Improvement

Our faculty are engaged and dedicated mentors, encouraging innovation and improvement in patient care and fellow training. Our fellow will emerge with a wealth of operative experience that prepares them well for private practice as well as academic careers.
