ENT Boot Camp

We have an extensive ENT Boot Camp experience specifically designed for our incoming PGY2 residents.  However, it is an expansive experience designed to incorporate residents at multiple years of training.  The Boot Camp occurs in July and affords residents directed didactic sessions, along with clinical practice in surgical simulation environments.  This may be in the surgical simulation lab, temporal bone lab, or on the floors in an active simulation of an acute airway emergency with nursing.  Multiple skill stations are present which cover the gamut of standard ENT emergent care. Residents will be exposed to this at several points in their training which offers them the opportunity to be learners and eventually teachers of their fellow residents.

Skill Stations:

  1. Non-surgical Airway
  2. Airway Foreign Body
  3. Laser Safety
  4. Flexible Laryngoscopy
  5. Surgical Airway
  6. Foreign Body Retrieval From Ear/Nose
  7. Epistaxis/Trauma Management
  8. Oral cavity/Head and Neck (neck hematomas, peritonsillar abscess, carotid blowout)
  9. Suturing Skills
  10. Complex Scenarios
  11. Mock ENT emergency scenario (residents/ENT nurses/attendings)
