French term or phrase: ORL
The only translation I have found for this is ENT, but I do not think it fits into the context. The whole sentence reads: Coordannateur du module d'apprentissage par problèmes de neurologie, ORL, Ophtalmologie du DCEM1 depuis janvier 1995 (in a CV)

"ENT" is correct --
Explanation:
stands for "ear-nose-throat," which is an accepted and legitimate term in Anglo-American medical parlance. If you want to be fancier, go with the Greek-based "otorhinolaryngology" (ORL).

Cheers, HC
