Otolaryngology is the medical speciality dedicated to the treatment of people’s ears, noses, and throats. The term is often shorted to “ENT” when referring to doctors in the field, who treat conditions ranging from sinusitis to cancers of the head and neck.

In order to become an ENT physician, candidates must first secure their MDs from an accredited institution. Following that, they may opt to specialize in ENT medicine by completing an additional 60 months of training and by passing an exam through the American Board of Otolaryngology.

ENT specialists can even choose to sub-specialize by undergoing fellowships. The sub-fields available to interested ENT doctors include laryngology, rhinology,allergy and pediatric otolaryngology. Dr. Consiglio completed a fellowship in Allergy at the University of Chicago.
