Poliquin Resident Research Competition 2013

We are pleased to present the collection of papers that comprise the Poliquin Resident Research Competition 2013 that was held at the 67th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Society of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery in Banff, Alberta. This competition is a highlight of the Annual Meeting and showcases some of the brightest and most innovative work that our trainees and their training programs have to offer.

Entry is open to all resident in a Canadian Otolaryngology-HNS training program. The competition recognizes, in memoriam, Dr. Jacques Poliquin, who was a prominent Otolaryngologist, researcher, and educator who fostered this competition in its formative years.

Publication charges for this collection were funded by Canadian Society of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery. All articles have undergone the journal’s standard peer-review process.

We hope that you enjoy the culmination of these efforts.
