Laryngology Fellowship



The Laryngology Fellowship was established by L. Arick Forrest, M.D. in the JamesCare Voice and Swallowing Disorders Clinic. The fellowship offers a diverse clinical experience with exposure to professional voice, neurolaryngology, laryngeal cancer, vocal cord paralysis, dysphagia therapy, and airway stenosis. Clinical fellows have the opportunity to work alongside speech language pathologists and participate in the Voice and Swallowing clinic at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. There is an emphasis in surgical procedures including microlaryngoscopy, thyroplasty, injection laryngoplasty, tracheal reconstruction, Zenker’s diverticulectomy, cricopharyngeal myotomy, and endoscopic/open treatments for laryngeal cancer.

There is ample opportunity for developing skills in office-based procedures including:

  • Videolaryngostroboscopy
  • Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES)
  • Laryngeal EMG
  • Laryngeal BOTOX injections
  • Injection Laryngoplasty
  • Transnasal Esophagoscopy
  • Office-based Flexible Fiberoptic Laryngoscopy with biopsy/LASER ablation

Applicants should submit a letter of interest, CV, and three letters of recommendation to the program directors or coordinator:
