Q: What is your particular experience or interest that would make you an effective member of the Audit Committee of the Academy?

Terance Tsue, MD

It is an honor and privilege to be nominated and considered for this prestigious opportunity to serve the AAO-HNS and greater otolaryngology community through the Audit Committee. I have a passion to help “move the needle” and a life philosophy of continuous improvement.

I hope to bring a fresh perspective and sage counsel based upon my national leadership experience as well as my developed fiscal management skills. Nationally, through serving on the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Residency Review Committee, I learned how to develop and shepherd major programmatic initiatives. As Milestones Committee chair, the essence of collaboration, iteration, and optimism to ensure success was manifest. Currently, as vice-president and physician-in-chief of the University of Kansas Cancer Center, vice-chair and treasurer of the department of otolaryngology, and in my previous tenure as associate dean for graduate medical education at the University of Kansas School of Medicine, fiscal responsibility with prudent budgetary oversight in an environment of eroding resources was central to success. These leadership positions also afforded me an “on the job” education in strategic vision planning, manpower allocation, and programmatic capital investment decisions.

Thank you for your consideration, trust, and the opportunity to serve you to make our specialty better for our patients.
