Master of Science Degree

The Master of Science degree offered by the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery provides inter-disciplinary training for clinical or basic science research in Otolaryngology. Master's programs can include research on normal function and disease of head and neck structures: otology, neuro-otology, laryngology, rhinology, oncology, surgery, auditory-vestibular sciences, middle-ear modelling, oto-toxicity, genomics, infection, thyroid disease, or genetics.

The master's program is intended for those having a strong interest in otolaryngology research (e.g., Otolaryngologists, physicians, dentists, therapists, veterinarians, medical professionals, engineering or science undergraduates, and others).  The program addresses research questions using an interdisciplinary approach, combining methodologies of both the clinical sciences and the basic sciences. The master's program is unique in Canada and rare elsewhere. Graduates of the program can better treat ear-nose-throat diseases; they are better positioned to do, and to evaluate, research in Otolaryngology. They typically obtain the most highly sought positions in their fields.

Admission to the program requires acceptance by a research supervisor. The Department will aim to match suitable applicants to supervisors according to mutual benefits. Applicants can also contact potential supervisors directly.
