ENT jobs are for physicians who specialize in ear, nose, and throat medicine. Being an ENT doctor is about more than just performing tonsillectomies! Otolaryngology is very extensive in its scope, and most physicians will often choose to focus their medical practice on a specific sub-specialty. The most common of these include allergies, head and neck, laryngology, neurotology and otology, pediatric otolaryngology, reconstructive surgery, rhinology, and sleep disorders.
It is also important to remember that even the abbreviation of ENT does not fully describe the focal structures that are included within this branch of medicine. Otolaryngology includes the diagnosis, treatment, and management of abnormalities and diseases associated with the structures and substructures of the ears, face, larynx, mouth, neck, nose, and sinuses.
Otolaryngologists must be careful when looking for physician jobs online. Many of these opportunities have vague descriptions that do not adequately define the job role. Often, these positions will have poorly defined job titles that simply state “ENT.” The use of the generic term of ENT for the description of such ENT jobs does not properly detail the doctor’s role. It is true that most otolaryngologists have the required qualifications and training needed to work within these positions. Most, however, have focused their careers and pursued the training and education that are required within their sub-specialties.
It should never be sufficient to just find any job. Instead, job seekers should be rewarded with the right job. There are specialized physician recruitment agencies, such as Doctor’s Choice Placement Services, Inc., that focus on the specific needs of the job seeking physician.
