About Si Chen
Hi there, my name is Si Chen and I work as a physician here at UF Health. I graduated from New York University, School of Medicine, and then went on to complete my residency in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine, Jackson Memorial Hospital. Dr. Chen completed fellowship training in Neurotology and Skull Base Surgery at House Ear Clinic/University of California Los Angeles.
As an academic physician, I provide training to resident physicians, fellow physicians, medical students, and staff. I also actively participate in research, teaching-conferences and grand-rounds.
