He completed a general surgery internship at Beth Israel Medical Center and an otolaryngology residency at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary-Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery­. There, he received several honors such as the Chief Resident Award, Teaching Award, Research Award and the Turner Award for Residency Excellence.
