Pediatric Otolaryngology Fellowship

Welcome to the UConn Pediatric Otolaryngology Fellowship at Connecticut Children’s.

The Pediatric Otolaryngology Fellowship Program sponsored by the University of Connecticut is a one year program that provides the fellow with experience in clinical and operative settings. It is a competency based program which emphasizes learning through hands-on experience and offers exposure to the full breath of pediatric otolaryngology. The goal of the program is to produce graduates that are autonomous, enthusiastic and dedicated to the field.

This attitude permeates the entire pediatric otolaryngology staff at Connecticut Children's. Christopher Grindle, M.D. is the program director as well as the co-director of the Connecticut Children's Cochlear Implant program. Along with the other members of the division of pediatric otolaryngology, he is committed to the education and development of new pediatric otolaryngologists.

Diversity and inclusion are foundational elements of the University of Connecticut Pediatric Fellowship Programs at Connecticut Children’s. Consistent with this focus we pursue diversity in all its varied expressions, including but not limited to, gender, race, ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation, and gender identity; with the goal of providing an educational environment that fosters the success of learners who are representative of the population of Connecticut, and a clinical environment that provides high quality healthcare to the myriad communities of the State.

On behalf of the faculty and staff, we welcome you to explore this program.
