Endoscopic Ear Surgery Workshop
The Endoscopic Ear Surgery Workshop is an advanced hands-on endoscopic dissection course using fresh, frozen cadaveric specimens. The course is suitable for consultants and senior otolaryngology trainees and will be delivered by international and national experts. Live dissection demonstrations will be undertaken by the faculty in all aspects of endoscopic ear surgery. There will be a variety of lectures on specific aspects of the technique, however, the main emphasis of the course will be to provide hands-on practical experience.

Cutting Edge Robotics in Laryngology and Otology: TORS and Beyond
The transoral robotic surgery course with a hands-on robotic session is designed for otolaryngologists, head and neck surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, oral maxillofacial surgeons, and other head and neck physicians. It will present a focused education experience in transoral endoscopic techniques for resecting primary head and neck tumors and the associated state-of-the-art application of advanced adjuvant radiotherapy techniques. Both transoral laser and robotic surgery will be featured as well as flexible laser surgery for inpatient and outpatient environments.

Thyroid & Parathyroid Ultrasound Workshop
The Thyroid and Parathyroid Ultrasound Workshop is a skills-oriented course designed to introduce the practicing surgeon to office-based ultrasound examination of the thyroid and parathyroid glands. The distinction of normal from malignant lymphadenopathy is emphasized with a demonstration of the comprehensive examination of lymph node basins in cervical zones I-VI.
