Welcome to the ORS Website

About the Society

The Otorhinolaryngological Research Society was formed in 1979 to promote research in ENT. Its membership is open to doctors of all grades in otorhinolaryngology in the UK, and meetings are also open to those from overseas and those in related disciplines. The meetings consist of free papers covering all aspects of the specialty, and are held twice a year.

The ORS is a forum for the best in current research in otorhinolaryngology in the UK. Each paper chosen to be presented at an ORS meeting is blindly peer reviewed by a panel of academics from the field of ENT, and upon presentation, papers are given immediate feedback and critiquing from an audience with an extensive knowledge base in ENT, research and pure sciences. Very few arenas offer presenters the undivided attention of so many esteemed academics in the confinements of one room, as at an ORS meeting. Even if you do not plan to present any work, the meetings are an excellent way to keep abreast of new developments and are CME accredited.

Distributed Denial of Service Attack (DDoS) - 25th November

Since 25th November, the company that hosts the ORS website has been affected by a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. Infected PCs around the world have flooded the hosting company with requests for web pages that has prevented it from servicing 'real' people trying to visit our website (and many others). The worst of the attack is now over and normal service should resume over the next 24 hours.

The ORS Spring meeting will be held at Royal College of Surgeons in London on Friday 13th March 2015.
