In addition, you will need to have 17.2 publications, presentations and volunteer experiences. As a general rule, you can expect to have a career as an otolaryngologist that is relatively stress free. However, you can still have a rough life if you don’t enjoy your work.
Whether you are in the field of otolaryngology or another specialty, it is important to have a broad knowledge of medicine and science. Your skills will help you treat a wide variety of patients.
