At The Black Otolaryngologist Network, we promote Black excellence and advancement in otolaryngology through mentorship, sponsorship, community building, and advocacy.
Black Americans are significantly underrepresented in Otolaryngology. Black otolaryngologists only make up 0.8% of otolaryngologists in America. (Faucett et. al, Laryngoscope 2020)
Mentorship and sponsorship are necessary for success. We provide access to resources for our members and medical students interested in Otolaryngology to succeed.
To increase diversity in our field, we are providing greater visibility of our Black Otolaryngologists in training (residents and fellows) and those finished with training (attendings) around the country. We celebrate the success and achievements of our members.
