University Affiliation

Each physician holds a full-time faculty appointment at Wayne State University. As faculty, they teach residents, medical students, and other graduate students about the specialty of Otolaryngology.

Part of the teaching process is actual "hands-on" experience with patients. For this reason, patients may at times be examined by students before being examined and treated by attending faculty member physicians. Be assured that at no time do students act independently of faculty physicians. The physician is always present to discuss the case with the student and make the decision on treatment. If for some reason patients do not wish to be seen by residents or students, the receptionist should be informed.
