This one and half day course, aimed at consultants and senior trainees in ENT, offers one to one direct training and guidance from an expert faculty. The complexity of this type of surgery is such that our faculty accounts for a considerable proportion of the entire UK experience base for these advanced techniques. The aim is to educate participants in the anatomical basis of new endoscopic procedures, provide supervised surgical rehearsal, develop instrument handling skills thus fostering safe adoption of new technically exacting techniques for use in hazard rich area of anterior skull base surgery. The course uses short didactic lectures, case scenarios and a stepwise dissection DVD. The mainstay is closely supervised cadaveric dissection.
