Program Description

Members from the Mayo Clinic Department of Otolaryngology team

Mayo Clinic Department of Otolaryngology

The Crawford Fellowship was established specifically for the Department of Otolaryngology at Mayo Clinic in Florida, a busy tertiary care surgical practice with an abundance of untapped clinical experience and data awaiting assimilation, presentation and publication.

The scope of the Crawford Fellowship includes all disciplines in otolaryngology. Department surgeons subspecialize in head and neck oncologic surgery, advanced endoscopic sinus surgery, laryngology and otologic/neurotologic surgery.

For a motivated, self-sufficient person, the range and number of projects that may be undertaken is extensive. The research fellow may be first or second author on most publications.

The department's medical and surgical records are completely electronic with search engines to facilitate data mining.

This fellowship encompasses clinical research only. There is no direct participation in patient care, either surgical or non-surgical. As a Crawford fellow you will, however, have the opportunity to observe these practices.

The research fellow is considered a Mayo Clinic Florida employee for the duration of the fellowship and receives:

  • Dedicated workspace and computer with research-appropriate software
  • Salary comparable to a senior level U.S. resident physician
  • Medical, vacation and trip benefits comparable to Mayo Clinic resident physicians
