Poliquin Resident Research Competition 2014

We are pleased to present the collection of papers that comprised the Poliquin Resident Research Competition 2014 that was held at the 68th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Society of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery in Ottawa, Ontario. 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. These projects were all presented at the meeting and the associated manuscripts have undergone rigorous peer review and been deemed worthy of publication in Journal of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery.

Any resident currently in a Canadian Otolaryngology-HNS training program is eligible to enter. 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.
