NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.—Washington may not see eye to eye on much these days, but the otolaryngologists and other healthcare professionals at the 2018 Triological Society Annual Meeting held in conjunction with the Combined Otolaryngology Spring Meetings (COSM) in this D.C. suburb agreed that the meeting was well worth their time.

COSM drew 2,700 registrants to National Harbor, Md., during the five-day meeting in April. Nearly 900 residents and medical students attended, many who were afforded the opportunity to present clinical and research papers and posters at the society meetings. During the Triological Society’s scientific sessions, 65 podium presentations were given and 125 posters were presented. Numerous panel discussions were held on everything from treating Eustachian tubes to patenting good ideas—all to further attendee education.
“One, you really get exposure to all of the different projects, the breadth and depth of what is going on in the community,” said third-year otolaryngology resident Mallory Raymond, MD, of Emory University in Atlanta. “And then it’s a good networking opportunity for you to meet people in the fields you’re interested in … it’s nerding out together.”| | | Next → | Single Page
