ENT

ENT stands for Ear, Nose, & Throat which is the area of the body that Otolaryngology specialists usually treat.  Otolaryngologists are physicians who are specially trained in medicine, surgery, and treatment of the ear, nose, throat, and related structures of the head and neck.

 

Otolaryngology is the oldest medical specialty in the United States, and Otolaryngologists complete up to 15 years of college and post-graduate training before becoming board certified and beginning practice.
