Otorhinolaryngologist, in 18 fewer letters [3]

This one could’ve been clued without the “in 18 fewer letters” kicker, but it wouldn’t have been nearly as funny that way. Credit to the clue then for finally calling out what we’ve all long thought about the good old Ear, Nose & Throat doctor–they’re ENTs, not an unpronounceable 21-letter word.
