Advanced Otology WORKSHOP

Description

This French language 1-day course aims at refining participants’ knowledge of temporal bone anatomy and covers teaching on basic and advanced surgical approaches in otology.

It includes a short theoretical session and surgical dissection on a fresh frozen head using power instruments.

Lead by Dr Decat and Dr Gregoire from UCL St Luc.

AUDIENCE

The training addresses the needs of surgeons who are interested in developing further surgical skills in otology procedures.

OBJECTIVE

During this course, participants will:
