While the pandemic is far from over, we realize that more clinics and ORs are reopening, and more faculty and residents are returning to work. We will be canceling our live webinars starting June. The lectures will be recorded offline and available in the past videos section.Our video-on-demand continues to receive more than 40,000 hits with viewers from across United States, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Columbia, Ecuador, Egypt, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Korea, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Taiwan, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Uruguay, and more!
OHNS faculty from around the country have been communicating with each other about how the COVID situation is impacting our programs. We are all facing the situation where our clinic and OR schedules have been reduced significantly. We don’t know how long this situation will drag on, but it may be several months. While we are all implementing telemedicine and still have a limited OR schedule, this is unlikely to be enough to keep our residents as engaged in learning as we would like.
Together, we organized a Collaborative Multi-Institutional Otolaryngology Residency Education Program, using Zoom.
This program has a class schedule that will rotate through faculty from the various programs that wish to participate. All residents that are available can log in to listen to the lectures and participate in the discussions. The lectures will be recorded and stored in the cloud so that residents unable to participate in the live activity can watch it later.
We think this would be a great way for residents to learn from and network with terrific faculty that they would not otherwise get the chance to interact with. Thus, we hope it would offer some benefit to all of us during this difficult situation. If we are lucky, things will get back to normal within a month or two and this activity can end.
The sessions will be held from 4-6 PM Pacific Daylight Time on weekdays. Sessions will feature outstanding faculty from the community of otolaryngology departments.

Faculty will present a 45 minute lecture with a 15 minute interactive discussion, Q&A, and/or oral board type case presentations. If you would like to give a presentation, please email Marlene Mendoza at email@example.com.
