Program Description

The Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery residency program at Madigan Army Medical Center has excelled since its inception in 1975 under the leadership of Dr. Leonard Hays and Dr. K.J. Lee (author of Essentials of Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery). Since that time, our program has consistently produced outstanding otolaryngologists who are equipped to be leaders in their field. All qualified medical students should strongly consider residency training in the Pacific Northwest at Madigan, one of the United States Army’s premier regional medical centers.
