These one day courses held in the Cuschieri Skills Centre, Ninewells Hospital, Dundee provide, to a maximum of 8 ENT surgical trainees, a competency based approach to anatomical temporal bone dissection.

A competency based 3 bone training manual has been devised so that trainees can complete 10-12 dissections on each temporal bone in a self-paced, structured manner under direct supervision of otological trainers.

The programme includes surgical anatomical training in myringoplasty, ossiculoplasty, tympanoplasty, stapedectomy, attico-antrostomy, mastoidectomy, labyrinthectomy, internal auditory canal exploration, endolymphathic sac decompression, facial nerve decompression and jugular fossa exploration.
