CHICAGO—The 119th Annual Meeting of the Triological Society, held in conjunction with the 2016 Combined Otolaryngology Spring Meetings (COSM), welcomed 2,187 attendees to Chicago to disseminate and exchange the latest cutting edge clinical and scientific research in the field of otolaryngology. The meeting allowed otolaryngologists and other professionals to come together to improve and expand their knowledge and skills. In particular, otolaryngology residents in training, medical students, and allied health professionals attended to learn ways in which they can enhance quality of care for their patients.

Grace Scott, an MD/PhD student at Northern Ontario School of Medicine in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, said that, for a learner, the Triological Society Annual Meeting is a great opportunity to be exposed to the various subspecialties of otolaryngology in the U.S. “The diversity in research projects serves to inspire my future research in otolaryngology,” she added.
Mark Persky, MD, with New York University Langone Medical Center in New York City, said he appreciates the opportunities that COSM offers to learn from the entire spectrum of otolaryngology specialties. “It’s a small specialty to begin with, and the meeting results in the cohesiveness of the specialty,” he added. “Collegiality is fostered among the different subspecialties in meetings like this. You [may] also get exposed to something that is going on in another otolaryngology subspecialty that helps with patient care within your specific practicing specialty that you may not have otherwise been exposed to.”| | | Next → | Single Page
