Abstract

The topics for the 11th annual meeting of the Society of University Otolaryngologists centered around two areas of importance to many students, residents, and certified otolaryngologists.

The initial topic concerns the problems of the residency matching program and acceptance of residents as it affects students, residents, and faculty. The unique format of prospective presentations by a student, a resident, and a general surgeon, which will be followed by a heated debate, assists in clarifying the issues.

The second topic area, concerning the selection process, evaluation of a resident's performance, and the nonreappointment or dismissal of unsatisfactory residents, is covered by several communications and a panel of experts. The sharing of ideas in this program was so successful and loudly acclaimed that many requests demanded its publication.

Of greatest importance is the progress that may have been kindled by the well-prepared efforts of the participants.
