Section for Residents and Fellows-in-Training

The Section for Residents and Fellows-in-Training (SRF) was born out of the Committee of Residents in Training, which had been in existence for over five years. Residents have a vote on the Board of Governors and a representative on the AAO-HNS/F Board of Directors. All residents and fellows-in-training who are members of the Academy are automatically members of the SRF.


Hannah Kuhar, MD, welcomes residents and fellows-in-training to the Academy’s Section for Residents and Fellows-in-Training (SRF)! Dr. Kuhar shares the importance of SRF and opportunities for you to get involved.
