Following medical school, Dr. Ward was honored to be chosen to pursue his training in Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Michigan, arguably the top facial plastics training program in the world. Following residency, he pursued further training with a fellowship in facial plastic surgery where he also served on the faculty at the University of Michigan. This experience was one of the most meaningful experiences of his career as he had a chance to train with the internationally-recognized masters of facial plastic surgery at the University of Michigan. He was then recruited back to the University of Utah where he joined the faculty on the school of medicine.

Upon arrival at the University of Utah, he brought with him new techniques in facial plastic surgery that had not previously been performed in Utah or the Intermountain West, including advanced techniques in rhinoplasty, facelift, blepharoplasty, reconstruction after skin cancer removal, facial trauma, and the treatment of patients with facial paralysis.
