A competency based 2 bone training manual has been devised so trainees can complete 10-12 dissections on each cadaveric Temporal Bone in a self-paced, structured manner, under direct supervision of Otological Trainers. Our curriculum is maped to the ISCP and the dissections performed can be used for PBA (procedure based assessment).

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.

The SAC recommends that each surgical trainee attends at least 2 training days per year.

The course provides:

  • Instruction in the use of microscopes and ENT surgical instrumentation
  • “Hands on” practical anatomical and surgical skills experience using cadaveric temporal bone specimens
  • Personal tuition from experienced Otologists
  • Evidence of skills training and competency
