Philadelphia Ear, Nose and Throat Associates: PENTA



Our office offers both clinical and research fellowship programs in affiliation with the American Institute for Voice and Ear Research, Drexel University College of Medicine, Hahnemann University Hospital and our other academic partners.


For those who have completed a residency in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, we offera focused, dedicated fellowship in Professional Voice Care and Laryngology.  Our fellowship was one of the first fellowships dedicated to professional voice care, and continues to offer our fellows a well-rounded fellowship experience.  The fellowship duration is 1 year, and encompasses all aspects of laryngology, including evaluation and management of airway disorders, swallowing disorders, laryngopharyngeal reflux disease, neurolaryngology, vocal fold paresis and paralysis, laryngeal manifestations of systemic disease, and laryngeal cancer, with an emphasis on professional voice care.  Our fellows work closely with Drs. Sataloff, Lyons, and Hu in clinical activities as well as in clinical and basic science research protocols throughout their fellowship year.  The fellowship includes voice training and performance experience. Those interested in our fellowship program should send a curriculum vitae and letter of interest to Dr. Sataloff at 219 North Broad Street, Floor 10, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,19107.

For more than 20 years, we have also offered a small number of clinical observation and research fellowships for our international colleagues. Graduates of our international fellowship have established voice centers around the world.


In addition to our clinical fellowship program, we also offer research fellowships to students, residents, and otolaryngologists who are interested in gaining research experience in laryngology, professional voice care, otology, neurotology, and other aspects of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery.    Those interested in our research fellowships should send a curriculum vitae and letter of interest to Dr. Sataloff at 219 North Broad Street, Floor 10, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,19107.
