Based on the success rate of US otolaryngology graduates on the American Board of Otolaryngology Certification Examination, it would appear that otolaryngology training is quite good.
However, it is not clear that all aspects of training are equal in quality, not only between programs but also within a single program.
One indication that there may be areas of weakness is the fact that despite the perceived national shortages of primary care physicians in the United States and the overabundance of specialists, 15% of the approximately 260 graduating otolaryngology residents extend their training beyond specialty training to subspecialty levels.
