It is one of the most rapidly developing departments of Stanley Medical College and Hospital, Chennai. While there has never been a dearth of clinical material in our OPD and wards, the need for improving the infrastructure of the department is also being quickly met with in order to cater to the huge number and variety of patients we deal with. This is a direct reflection of the enthusiastic and hard-working nature of the members of this department and also the income generated by the adoption of the Chief Minister’s Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme. Our department in headed by a very positive, patient- and student-friendly Head, who leaves no stone unturned in his focused endeavors for the development of the department and also the academic progress of the Post-Graduates and students under him. There are two units in the department of ENT. In each unit, there is one Associate Professor posted. The 1st unit has three Assistant Professors while the 2nd unit has two Assistant Professors. Each unit has to conduct three admission days and three Operation Theatre days in a week. On Sundays, ward rounds are taken diligently and emergency cases attended to by the members of the two units alternatively. Every academic year, 4 MS(ENT) and 2 DLO Post-Graduates get admitted into the department. They are equally divided between the two units. Hence at any point of time in a year, 16 Post-Graduates are getting rigorously trained in the department. On an average, about 500 patients attend ENT-OPD everyday of the week from Monday to Saturday. A number of specialized services are offered in the department for the accurate diagnosis and treatment of the patients, such as:

  • Diagnostic Nasal Endoscopy (and biopsy)

  • VideoLaryngoScopy (and biopsy)

  • Nasopharyngoscopy

  • Electronystagmography

  • Other Specialised tests of Audiometry

The Post-Graduates are taught the principles governing these tests and procedures, how to carry them out and how to interpret the results.

A temporal bone dissection lab with microscopes is available for the training of the Post-Graduates in temporal bone dissection. An air-conditioned seminar hall is available for the purpose of conducting theory and clinical demonstration classes for the students and Post-graduates.
