Core Skills: ENT Facial Plastic Surgery Workshop

The Core Skills: ENT Facial Plastic Surgery Workshop will provide ENT and Plastic Surgery trainees with increased operative experience and the opportunity to consolidate knowledge and skills in a range of techniques in facial plastic surgery.  This hands-on cadaveric workshop will reinforce knowledge of anatomy and provides the opportunity to practise a range of facial plastic procedures not commonly performed by trainees in clinical practice. 

Hands-on dissection and pairing of participants of similar skill levels enables discussion and group learning under expert supervision.

The sessions are fully interactive with a high ratio of knowledgeable faculty to participants.  Faculty provide superior training and immediate feedback in a practical and controlled workshop environment. Limited  positions are available for Observer, and for Theatre Nurses in the role of assistant.

This workshop immediately follows on from the complementary Core Skills: ENT Sinus Surgery Workshop the day prior. Participants are welcome to register for both workshops.
