Intercollegiate Diploma in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery - Part 1Part 1 Part 2
The Diploma in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery (DO-HNS) is an intercollegiate examination run jointly with the other Royal Colleges of Surgeons in Great Britain and Ireland.
The purpose of the Intercollegiate Diploma in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery is to test the breadth of knowledge, the clinical and communication skills, and the professional attributes considered appropriate by the Colleges for a doctor intending to undertake practice within an Otolaryngology department in a trainee position.
It is also intended to provide a test for those who wish to practise within another medical specialty, but who have an interest in the aspects of where that specialty interacts with the field of otolaryngology. In particular, it will be relevant for General Practitioners wishing to offer a service in minor ENT surgery.
Those who have passed the DO-HNS Part 2 examination may use that pass to gain Membership(ENT) of the College in conjunction with a pass in Part A of the Intercollegiate MRCS examinations: this is subject to satisfying the Membership regulations in full.
