After completing a Bachelors of Science at Brigham Young University in Zoology and a Masters of Science in Biology at Tufts University, Dr. Colson went on to earn his medical degree at New York Medical College in 2000. He then completed a one year internship in general surgery followed by a residency in otolaryngology at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY, graduating in 2005.
