AbstractAsian nations differ from one another in population, cultural background, ethnic tradition and economic situation. The training of otorhinolaryngologists in Asia is not in any way uniform. A questionnaire survey of 26 leading institutions in 12 countries/regions was carried out. The emphasis of investigation is towards the training programme for specialists in Otorhinolaryngology and continuous medical education (CME). The response rate of the survey was 100 per cent. The duration of training for otorhinolaryngologists ranges from three to seven years and an exit assessment is held in seven countries/regions. The training programmes are modifications of either the British or the American pattern depending on tradition. Documentation of CME is available in eight countries/regions while a defined cycle has been established in only three. Medical/health authorities or professional societies in each country contribute towards its monitoring. Better communication and sharing of experience will improve the training of otorhinolaryngologists in Asia.
