Richard Miyamoto, Otolaryngologist at the Indiana University School of Medicine, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of otolaryngology.
Originally in the pre-dental program in college, Dr. Miyamoto took the same courses as the pre-med students and decided to start the program. After graduating cum laude with a Bachelor of Science from Wheaton College, he attended the University of Michigan. He became more exposed to otolaryngology and microsurgery and discovered what interested him most. As he advises future medical professionals, he wanted to enter a discipline where he could be involved in both operative experience and office practice. After earning his MD in 1970, Dr. Miyamoto completed service as a major in the U.S. Air Force from 1975 to 1977. He obtained a Master of Science in otology from the University of Southern California the following year.
Dr. Miyamoto began his career as an intern at Butterworth Hospital from 1970 to 1971 before becoming a resident in surgery for the following year. He then worked as a resident in otolaryngology at the Indiana University School Medicine from 1972 to 1975. After completing two years of military service, Dr. Miyamoto became a part of the staff at the Indiana University School Medicine, taking on the positions of an assistant professor, an associate professor, the chairman and chief of the otolaryngology department, and a professor. Currently, he holds the title of the Arilla DeVault Professor Emeritus and also contributes as the chairman of the St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf.
Notably, Dr. Miyamoto has been a member of several professional organizations including the American College of Surgeons, the American Auditory Society, the American Otological, Rhinological and Laryngological Society, and the Deafness Research Institute, among several others. Well-regarded in his field, he has received the Ritchey Emeriti Faculty Service Award, the President’s Medal from Indiana University, and an Award of Merit from the American Otological Society. In 2001, he was presented with an Honorary Doctorate Degree in engineering from the Rose Hulman Institute of Technology. Near the end of his tenure position, his colleagues, patients, friends, former students, and family formed a scholarship in his honor at Indiana University. Dr. Miyamoto offers his skill as a member of the editorial board for the Laryngoscope, the American Journal of Otology, the European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, Anales de Otorhinolaryngology Mexicana, and the World Journal of Otorhinolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery, among other publications. As a testament to his great success, Dr. Miyamoto has been featured in the first and second editions of Who’s Who of Emerging Leaders in America and in multiple editions of Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in the Midwest, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, Who’s Who in Medicine and Healthcare, and Who’s Who in America.
