• Dr. Walsh joins our faculty following a two year fellowship in Otology/Neurotology at the Michigan Ear Institute. She earned her medical degree from Harvard Medical School and completed her residency with us here at UAB. Dr. McGrew had the pleasure of training Erika throughout her residency and advocated for her recruitment, recognizing her skill in managing both common and complex conditions of the ear, temporal bone and lateral skull base. Dr. Walsh is currently accepting new patients and her clinic opens mid-August 2019.
