Elizabeth H. Wick, MD

Hometown: Fairport, NY 

Personal Statement: I was initially interested in ENT because of my early challenges with unilateral hearing loss. This interest grew through my connection to medical device development and the role it can play in improving patients’ lives. I was able to pursue this further by working on a stimulation device to protect the airway during swallowing. Outside of work, I enjoy basketball, soccer, piano, and spending time with friends and family.
