The rhinology fellowship at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary / Harvard Medical School is a one-year program designed to combine the best features of a personal mentorship with the clinical, research, and teaching opportunities of a top-ranked, tertiary-care academic center. Two clinical fellows are accepted each year.


Clinical Rotations:

Fellows work with 4 dedicated rhinologists who have high-volume academic practices -- Drs. Ralph Metson, Eric Holbrook, Stacey Gray, and Ben Bleier. Each fellow will spend two 3-month rotations with Dr. Metson and two 3-month rotations sharing time with Drs. Holbrook, Gray, and Bleier.

Weekly Schedule:

Each week, fellows will spend approximately 2 days in the O.R. and 2 days in the clinic . One day per week will be protected research time.

Research Responsibilities:

The development and execution of quality clinical and basic science research projects in the field of rhinology is a priority.

Diversity of Cases:

Fellows will participate in over 300 surgical cases during the year, as they receive comprehensive training in the depth and breadth of sinus, orbit, and skull base surgery. Examples of cases performed during the fellowship can be found at Case logs are available from the current fellows.
