About Thomas Schrepfer

Hi my name is Thomas Schrepfer, M.D., MSc, FMH, ORL, and I work as an assistant professor of head and neck surgery in the University of Florida Department of Otolayrngology. I attended medical school at the University of Zurich in Zurich, Switzerland. After obtaining my medical degree, I completed an anesthesiology internship and a general surgery residency at a regional hospital in Horgen, Switzerland. I then pursued my otolaryngology residency at the University Hospital Zurich, where I focused on head and neck surgery. I completed a pediatric otolaryngology fellowship at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri, followed by a pediatric otolaryngology fellowship at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. Prior to joining UF Health, I was a research fellow at Children’s Mercy Hospital and Kresge Hearing Research Institute at the University of Michigan Schacht Lab. During more than 10 years of clinical and research training, I gained experience in multiple areas of ENT, ranging from facial trauma to pediatric endoscopies to open airway surgery.

I am a member of the Association for Research in Otolaryngology and the Swiss Society of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, Head and Neck Surgery. I have also contributed to a number of research publications, book chapters, posters and oral presentations at national and international conferences.
