Born to be an ENT - Otolaryngologist - Head & Neck Surgeon
“I was born to be an ENT doctor, “ said Kevin G. Hueman, MD FAAOA, North Carolina Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat’s new doctor of otolaryngology. “Early in my undergraduate career, I felt a calling to serve others as a physician. Once in medical school, I gravitated towards a field which included a technical aspect where I could work with my hands. During gross anatomy, I found that head & neck anatomy was clearly the most fascinating. Once on clinical rotations, it became obvious that I had to pursue Otolaryngology / Head & Neck Surgery!”

He studied chemistry, life sciences and nuclear engineering at the United States Military Academy at West Point. He graduated as a Distinguished Cadet with a Bachelor of Science.
