Otolaryngology. Say what? Try oh-toe-lare-in-gol-oh-jee. Also known as ear/nose/throat medicine, or just ENT for short. The field of medicine encompasses not only some of the longest, most tongue-twisting, Latin & Greek-rooted terms you’ll ever have to hear/read/pronounce, but also plenty of impressively tidy abbreviations. Ear/nose/throat medicine has all the phenomenal cosmic power of four different Greek words and three parts of the body bundled into “otolaryngology,” but is able to be conveniently shrunk into the itty-bitty-living-space of “ENT.”
At June’s meeting of the Ladder you’ll have the opportunity to learn all about ear/nose/throat medicine and surgery, including why ENT medicine comes as a package deal. You’ll learn about different ear/nose/throat problems and how they are diagnosed, as well as what kinds of surgical & non-surgical procedures can be done to fix those problems.
So bring bring your ears, nose, throat & a friend to the next opportunity for medical fun and learning on Saturday June 14th at 12:30pm at the UROC building (2001 Plymouth Ave N, Minneapolis) – lunch will be provided! The UROC building is reachable by Metro Transit bus routes 19, 32 & 7.
The Ladder is a Society of Medical Scholars ages 9 to 99. Meetings are every second Saturday of the month.
