Course Topics

Complications of ENT Infections /Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Diagnose complications commonly associated with ENT infections; Explain the mechanisms of infectious spread that contribute to complications of ENT infections; Review current trends in the microbial etiologies of ENT infections; Utilize clinical assessment and radiologic imaging to guide management of ENT infections; Select pediatric patients with obstructive sleep apnea who may benefit from referral for dental or orthodontic management.

Perioperative Antibiotic Use/Septoplasty

Estimate risk for infection of surgical wounds in common otolaryngologic procedures; Compare and contrast effects of preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative antibiotics in common otolaryngologic procedures; Identify patient and surgical factors associated with increased risk for postoperative infection; Develop strategies for pain control, management of the septum, and use of antibiotics after septoplasty; Select pediatric patients who would benefit from septoplasty or septorhinoplasty


Summarize the etiology and pathogenesis of congenital and acquired cholesteatomas; Diagnose cholesteatomas based on common signs and symptoms, as well as findings on workup; Review benefits and drawbacks of different surgical approaches for removal of cholesteatoma; Identify the primary goals of surgery for cholesteatomas; Select techniques for obliteration and reconstruction in cholesteatoma surgery based on patient anatomy and extent of disease.

Evidence-based Management of Otitis Media in Pediatric Patients

Develop management strategies for acute otitis media based on the age of the patient, laterality of infection presence of otorrhea, and history of otitis media; Choose an appropriate antibiotic therapy for acute otitis media based on the likely pathogen and history of prior infection; Select patients with recurrent acute otitis media or otitis media with effusion who may benefit from placement of tympanostomy tubes; Educate patients and caregivers on strategies to reduce risk for recurrent acute otitis media; Implement protocols for placement of tympanostomy tubes in the office or operating room setting.


Facial Nerve/Sialolithiasis

Recognize signs of disease affecting the facial nerve; Locate important landmarks for surgery with potential to damage the facial nerve; Develop an effective management plan for acute facial palsies; Grade facial nerve denervation with the House-Brackmann scale; Choose a surgical approach for patients with salivary gland stones.

Inner Ear Anomalies/Frailty in Head and Neck Surgery

Perform appropriate tests and imaging to diagnose the cause of pediatric hearing loss; Classify abnormalities of inner ear anatomy and embryology; Identify available management strategies to improve pediatric hearing and speech and language development; Evaluate the association between frailty and health outcomes in patients with head and neck cancer; Recognize the role of prehabilitation and integrated supportive care plans in improving the outcomes of frail patients with head and neck cancers.

Tinnitus /Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Utilize patient history and physical examination to identify etiology of tinnitus; Perform diagnostic workup and imaging for pulsatile and nonpulsatile tinnitus; Select management strategies for tinnitus based on underlying cause; Identify physiologic phenotypes of obstructive sleep apnea based on measures on polysomnography; Prescribe appropriate therapies to manage obstructive sleep apnea based on the physiologic phenotype of each patient.

Ossicular Chain Reconstruction/Phenotypes of GERD

Select patients with middle ear pathologies who are most likely to have improved hearing outcomes from ossicular chain reconstruction; Utilize diagnostic techniques to identify the etiology of hearing loss; Identify factors that can affect outcomes of ossicular chain reconstruction; Prescribe nonsurgical alternatives to ossicular chain reconstruction for patients unlikely to benefit from surgery; Differentiate among and manage phenotypes of gastroesophageal reflux disease.


Select appropriate management strategies based on phenotypic characteristics of obstructive sleep apnea; Utilize drug-induced sleep endoscopy to guide treatment decisions in obstructive sleep apnea; Compare and contrast characteristics and underlying causes of obstructive sleep apnea in younger vs older adults; Identify indications and contraindications for adenotonsillectomy; Manage common perioperative and postoperative complications with adenotonsillectomy.

Highlights from Jefferson Thyroid Cancer and Parathyroid Disease: Updates in Diagnosis and Treatment

Summarize recent trends in the prevalence and incidence of thyroid cancer; Identify genetic mutations associated with common subtypes of thyroid cancer; Utilize pre-, intra-, and postoperative strategies to minimize risk for hypoparathyroidism after thyroidectomy; Select appropriate imaging studies to assist with preoperative localization of parathyroid tissue; Use intraoperative testing to confirm the success of surgical removal of parathyroid lesions.
