J. Dale Browne, MD, chair and professor of otolaryngology, was recently invited to speak at the 38th annual Pan-American Otolaryngology Society meeting in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. While there, he was surprised with a special recognition award for elevating the level of care in otolaryngology head and neck surgeries, along with the educational work with the otolaryngology residency in Santo Domingo.

Browne and his team have done phenomenal work for 12 years in the Dominican Republic. They have completed more than 1,800 surgeries and have seen more than 7,500 patients in clinics. Additionally, they have sponsored the Santo Domingo fourth-year residents to rotate in their department for several months each year, where they learn new skills and techniques they can apply to their patients. They have donated equipment to their program, and Dr. Browne has personally trained the most successful oncologic head and neck reconstructive surgeon in the Dominican Republic with microvascular techniques.
