The ENT director is a GREAT guy I'd agree. The training program is kind of middle of the road that suffers by comparison to the resources of some of the real powerhouse programs like Iowa. I think most of the residents were happy with their training and it would prepare you very well for private practice ENT.Great staff. The director is a fantastic HN surgeon.
The OtoHNS department is really a division of GenSurg, which is extraordinarily malignant at UofL.
Finally, there's Louisville. It's a relatively large town that's nowhere near as large as the people who grew up there might think it is. For it's size it should probably have a better restaurant scene, although you can find most of the basics in their most basic forms. There's a small town attitude throughout the community - everyone knows everything.
