Resident Applications & Interviews
Resident applications will be reviewed and selected through the Electronic
Residency Application Service (ERAS) sponsored by the Association of Academic
Departments of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery. Each year, the OU
Otolaryngology Residency Training Program receives approximately 300
applications from which about 36 applicants are chosen to interview to fill the
3 positions for AY2021. All applications are reviewed and interviews for
prospective candidates are arranged on the basis of their medical school
record, research experience, extracurricular activities and letters of
recommendation. There is no minimum score requirement, however, competition is
exceptionally high, with many more outstanding applicants than openings each
year. Applicants are ranked on the basis of high moral, ethical and
professional qualifications by the Resident Selection Committee for final
selection in the Otolaryngology Matching Program.
