NEW: The Oto Approach Podcasts

The Oto Approach is a podcast designed by medical students and written with the help of residents and staff otolaryngologists. The purpose of this podcast is to provide summaries of common presentations in OHNS, and to shed light on the many subspecialties within OHNS. These podcasts are designed with M4 students in mind; however, the episodes can be used as a supplement at any level of medical training. Whether you’re walking your dog, making dinner, or driving to the hospital, The Oto Approach is a great tool that can help you learn about all things otolaryngology.
