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 400 applications from which about 36 applicants are chosen to interview to fill the 2 positions for AY2022. 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.
