Timothy McCulloch, MD, chairman of the UW Division of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery and Charles N. Ford Professor in Otolaryngology, was recently inducted into the Triological Society, the most prestigious society in otolaryngology. Dr. McCulloch joins his UW Department of Surgery colleagues Seth Dailey, MD, G. Mark Pyle, MD, and Charles Ford, MD, as fellows of the society.

Election to the Triological Society is achieved through one’s body of academic work and acceptance of a thesis in the field of otolaryngology, which is critically reviewed and accepted by a panel of peers. Dr. McCulloch’s thesis presentation was on Normative Data and Clinical Value of Pharyngeal High-resolution Manometry.

“Dr. McCulloch is past president of the Dysphagia Society and internationally recognized as an innovator in the field of swallowing and dysphagia,” says Dr. Ford, professor emeritus with the UW Department of Surgery. “His pioneering work in developing high-resolution manometry forms the basis of his thesis. This technique provides an innovative, objective way to assess swallowing function and dysfunction.”

Dr. McCulloch’s induction into The Triological Society took place during the Combined Otolaryngology Spring Meetings (COSM) in Chicago, Illinois, May 18-22.

The American Laryngological, Rhinological and Otological Society, Inc., aka The Triological Society, was founded in 1895 in New York, New York. In the more than 100 years since its founding, the Triological Society has attracted the best and brightest in academic and clinical otolaryngology.
