CTEC’s highly practical Core Skills: Plastic Surgery Head, Neck and Flap workshop is designed for Trainees in Plastic Surgery.
Entirely hands-on, this one day cadaveric workshop aims to increase participant anatomical knowledge and the acquisition of technical skills in surgical approaches to the head and neck, nerve identification and the raising and use of flaps in head and neck plastic surgery. Limited places are also available for Service Registrars with an interest in Plastic Surgery, and for Theatre Nurses in the role of assistant. This workshop is not suitable for Junior Doctors below the level of Service Registrar.
The morning session will provide participants with exposure to approaches to the head and neck and raising flaps.
The afternoon session will focus on the use of various flaps. Each hands-on cadaveric session will feature two participants per station under the instruction of an expert faculty member.
The following sessions feature 100% hands-on dissection and will be tailored to provide participants with appropriate surgical training for their level of ability and skill set.
Each station will offer a dedicated cadaveric model and each participant will benefit from practising procedures in a supportive, authentic clinical environment.
