Diploma in Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery
The Diploma in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery (DOHNS) examination is an intercollegiate examination, which tests the knowledge, clinical skills, communication and professional attributes that would be expected of a doctor joining an otolaryngology department as a trainee or non-consultant career grade. The diploma is also relevant for GPs and doctors within another medical speciality which interacts with otolaryngology.
The examination consists of two parts – Part 1: multiple choice questions (MCQs) and Part 2: objective structured clinical examination (OSCE), both required to be passed to be awarded the DOHNS.
