The unit provides a full range of clinical otolaryngology services to the population of Tayside (City of Dundee, Angus, Perthshire and Kinross) and North-east Fife. The catchment area encompasses approximately 751,000 people. The services are based at Ninewells Hospital & Medical School and includes 36 in-patient beds, twin operating theatres, out-patient clinics and audiology facilities on the Ninewells site. In-patient facilities are based in Ward 26 in the West Block of the hospital, with theatres next door.
The department also offers additional out-patients clinics in Perth Royal Infirmary, Stracathro Hospital and St. Andrews Community Hospital. All clinics are fully equipped with the necessary endoscopes, microscopes and audiology services to provide a full ENT service.
The main Audiology department is now based in King's Cross Hospital in Dundee. Some ENT clinics, and all Audiovestibular Medicine clinics in Dundee, also take place there.
The main source of information for medical students in the ENT department is the Dundee Ear Nose and Throat medblog at https://mbchb.dundee.ac.uk/ent/. Please follow the link to the blog for further information relevant to undergraduate teaching. Updates to ENT block timetables and information about changes to sessions will all be found via the blog.
The study guide and all related teaching material for the Phase 2 and 3 blocks are also available on the medblog. Any materials hosted elsewhere, such as on Blackboard, may be out of date. Please refer to the blog for the latest versions of all course material.
