Otolaryngology began, after its separation from Ophthalmology, as an autonomous Academic Department at Queen’s University, in 1965. The two disciplines had previously shared both training and Certification by the Royal College of Surgery (Canada). Dr David Rosen was the Head of Ophthalmology (including Otolaryngology) at that time.
Dr. Malcom Williams appointed as first Head of Otolaryngology.
With the assistance of the Atkinson Charitable Foundation, and a Grant of $18,500.00 to build an Audiology suite, was received almost immediately. Space was allocated for an up-to-date sound-proof unit, audiometers, and an office, in the Bawden Wing, whilst an Ear, Nose and Throat clinic with a small waiting-room was set up in the Empire wing. Mrs. Muriel Laird was hired and trained first as an Audiological, and then as a Vestibular technician, with the introduction of Electronystagmography and other balance testing.
The Nickle Wing at KGH became available to house its whole Administrative and Clinical care functions (Inpatient and Ambulatory). The roles of Speech Pathology, and particularly Audiology, continued to evolve rapidly, especially with the appointments of Audiologists Marie Heinzman and Paula Varette-Cerre.
