Past Pediatric Otolaryngology Fellows - Why Choose Iowa?


Abraham Sheffield, MD, PhD

My Pediatric Otolaryngology Fellowship at the University of Iowa was the most enjoyable and educational of any year of my medical training. I had the privilege and responsibility of providing care for each child who came to the Children's Hospital with complex Otolaryngologic needs. I appreciated the autonomy I was given to grow as a surgeon and to teach residents, all the while receiving appropriate supervision and excellent mentoring from the faculty.






Adrian Gooi, MD
The Pediatric Otolaryngology fellowship at the University of Iowa is where I solidified my surgical skills, clinical acumen and expertise in education. Working with the Pediatric Otolaryngology faculty and the wonderful kids was amazing! My wife and I still look back fondly on our memories from Iowa.






Steven Goudy, MD
I chose to do a fellowship at the university of Iowa based on its strong clinical and research background. Learning from the surgeon scientists there gave me a strong clinical foundation and an understanding of how to integrate your clinical and research practice. Everyone within the department and the university was proud to work there, quick to lend a helping hand and all around supportive. 







Glenn Green, MD
My Iowa pediatric otolaryngology fellowship was transformative and provided the foundation I needed to handle complex medical and surgical problems.  It gave me the confidence, skills and strategies necessary to work in the most complicated areas of pediatric otolaryngology as a clinician-scientist.
