Best of Orals Showcases Expertise Across the Specialty

A large number of abstracts are submitted for presentation at the Annual Meeting.


A large number of abstracts are submitted for presentation at the Annual Meeting. They undergo a rigorous peer review evaluation, with each one being assessed by five to seven different reviewers. The abstracts are ranked based on subspecialty. Then, based on the rankings, all the abstracts are discussed at a joint meeting of the subspecialty members of the Annual Meeting Program Committee. The top abstracts, which are those that are top scoring and have the most applicability to the entire specialty and to all otolaryngologist, are then chosen to comprise the Best of Orals session.
