Organisation profile

Otolaryngology consists of 5 subdivisions, including otology, rhinology, laryngology, head and neck oncology, and pediatric otolaryngology. The Department of Otolaryngology provides a comprehensive learning environment for medical students, resident physicians, and interns from the Department of Audiology and Speech Language Pathology. The didactic content includes class learning, surgical instruction, and inpatient and outpatient teaching. Operating rooms are equipped for microsurgery, CO2 laser surgery, and da Vinci surgery. Outpatient clinic is equipped with digital endoscope, video stroboscopy system, narrow band imaging system, and equipment for auditory examination, nasal resistance test, and acoustic examination. The medical team of the Department of Otolaryngology receives extramural funds from the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of Health and Welfare, and intramural funds from the National Cheng Kung University Hospital. The medical team continues to strive for excellence with frequent publications in the areas of clinical and basic research.
