Core Skills: ENT Sinus Surgery Workshop
The Core Skills: ENT Sinus Surgery Workshop places a focus on increasing procedural knowledge and operative skills in established and emerging techniques in ENT sinus surgery. This highly practical FESS cadaveric workshop provides participants with exposure to some mandatory ENT Surgical Traineeship procedures using the latest highly specialised navigational imaging technologies. It will enhance participant knowledge of nasal sinus anatomy.
This workshop aims to improve surgical safety, operative confidence and procedural efficiency in a way that cannot be provided by routine surgical supervision or by other simulated environments.
The sessions are fully interactive with a high ratio of faculty to participants. Knowledgeable faculty will provide superior training and immediate feedback in a practical and controlled workshop environment. Limited Observer positions are available.
The Core Skills: ENT Sinus Surgery workshop is immediately followed by the complementary workshop Core Skills: Facial Plastic Surgery workshop. Participants are welcome to register for both workshops.
