The University of Miami/Jackson Health System Advanced Rhinology and Endoscopic Skull Base (International) Fellowship Program* is designed for international otololaryngologists who have completed their residency and desire to advance their fund of knowledge and surgical skills in the otolaryngology subspecialty area of rhinology and related disorders. The two-year program assumes minimal-to-no prior training in basic endoscopic sinonasal surgical techniques and rhinology.
Advanced endoscopic rhinologic cases are the focus of this fellowship.
In addition, the fellow will gain experience in the diagnosis, management and surgical treatment of sleep disorders and snoring, within our multidisciplinary sleep disorders team.
Fellows will have clinical/surgical rotations where they will see a diversity of cases. The fellow is also actively involved in resident supervision and teaching and will help the faculty in assisting the residents on a number of common general otolaryngologic procedures. Additionally, the fellow will assist the faculty on their private rhinology cases.

Medical Licensing Examination:
All applicants must successfully complete United States Medical Licensing Examination Steps 1, 2 and 3 and the Test of English as a Foreign Language prior to the start of the program (the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates certification is required).*
*Exceptions can be made if the candidate receives their first year of rhinology in a U.S. or Canadian residency program, with known basic rhinology training (i.e., mentors that are fellowship-trained rhinologists), equivalent to our first year curriculum. In the latter situation, the candidate may be only required to do one year of training (i.e., second year of advanced rhinology). This may include a four to five month pre-fellowship research and cadaver lab rotation, in preparation for their clinical fellowship year. Additionally, the candidate may choose to do one year of research fellowship, with the anticipation of completing their USMLE and TOEFL; however, a position in the clinical fellowship cannot be granted without having passed the USMLE exam.
There is postgraduate training required in the form of a successfully completed residency program in otolaryngology.
