Otorhinolaryngology, a critical surgical subspecialty, is the focus of the Introduction to Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders course. Developed by the top-ranked experts at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, this program offers an in-depth exploration of conditions related to the head and neck.
The course begins with an informative overview of voice disorders, covering the physiology of vocal production and the management options available. It delves into the advancements made in vocal production physiology and the emergence of laryngology as a subspecialty in response to the knowledge gap between patients and practitioners.
Addressing the need to bridge these gaps, the course provides a thorough review of acute and chronic rhinosinusitis, including potential benefits of sinus surgery, indications for treatment, and the necessary procedural preparations. Learners will also gain an understanding of the distinctions between acute and chronic rhinosinusitis and their respective treatments.
Furthermore, the course focuses on the pathophysiology of different types of hearing loss and common pathologies in the outer, middle, and inner areas of the ear. Participants will develop familiarity with the disorders of the auditory pathway and gain insights into available treatments for various ear conditions.
