Mount Sinai School of Medicine is internationally recognized for ground-breaking clinical and basic-science research, and innovative approaches to medical education and its PhD program ranked third among 53 institutions in a nationwide survey conducted by Academic Analytics. Mount Sinai has one of the oldest and most respected Ear, Nose and Throat departments in the country. It is home to specialists with expertise in all ENT disorders and is renowned for its state-of-the-art treatment of head and neck cancers.
