On behalf of the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our second year of the OTORounds.
The OTORounds are a monthly forum where we will discuss different topics related to Otology, Neurotology, and Audiology. The topics are chosen to stimulate discussions among participants, and will be addressing:
- Recent updates in the field
- Controversial management topics
- Specialized evaluation and management
To best achieve this goal, we will be joined by a rich roster of otologists and audiologists, all recognized leaders in the field, and outstanding educators. Your questions and interventions during the sessions are welcome, and we look forward to your participation. We learn better by learning together.
The OTORounds will be a virtual event and the program has been scheduled to allow for evening attendance across the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia, and will be held every second Tuesday of the month at 6PM UAE time. Make sure to sign up so you can receive regular updates.

The goal of this educational series is to keep participants up to date on the latest evidence in the management of ear related diseases, from the latest in evaluation, medical management, surgical management, other therapies and long term follow up.
It is expected to affect their practice in their approach to patients, each in their specific domain, including improving their confidence in recommending testing paradigms or discussing the pros and cons of different therapeutic options or surgical techniques. Learning objectives will be different every session, and will be defined accordingly.
Broadly speaking, in each session we will seek to:
- Identify and describe the evidence for proper decision making
- Identify the evidence for specific testing or management approaches
- Describe potential pitfalls in clinical applications
- Highlight the risks and benefits of different treatment alternatives
