The ability to blend the management of allergic disease into the general treatment of head and neck disease is core to the otolaryngologist's role as regional specialist of the upper aerodigestive tract. Allergy training is now considered an integral component of the residency curriculum established by the American Board of Otolaryngology. By obtaining any needed additional training through organizations such as the AAOA and by validating that education by obtaining fellowship status in the AAOA, the postgraduate otolaryngologist who adds allergy to his or her practice will find the technique to be safe, effective, and of great benefits to patients.
