Welcome to Otolaryngology (ENT) Training
in the North West
Otolaryngology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of the whole range of medical and surgical problems affecting the ear, nose and throat and surrounding anatomical areas.
HEE North West Otolaryngology (ENT) Sectors
There are opportunities to move across sectors for specific training needs. Both sectors can deliver the whole curriculum, there are large children’s hospitals in each of the areas. Both training regions and committees work very well and facilitate training for all trainees.
There is an active research collaborative in both sectors and trainees are encouraged to link into this and get involved in multi-centre studies.
Educationally the training days are combined and run on a monthly basis.
From August 2018, run-through training in Otolaryngology will also be available in the North West as part of a pilot scheme. Run-through posts will be available in both East and West Sectors of HEE North West from ST1 level.
