Temporal Bone Dissection Course
A three-day dissection course is held annually, in November of each year. In 2015 this runs from the 6th -8th. It is run by the Otology and Skull Base Surgery Unit at St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney. There is 15 hours of fully supervised temporal bone dissection in the Clinical Skills Laboratory which has 17 fully equipped work stations, microscopes, new instruments and state of the art micro drilling systems, along with a permanent in-house audio visual facility. Live Surgery is televised via video link up to the Function Room, St Vincent’s Clinic. Two sessions of lectures are also included and span Otology, Neuro-Otology and Skull Base topics and are followed by round table discussions, where the delegates are encouraged to participate with their own case studies, supported by scans, etc.
The Live surgery Audiology Seminar is held preceeding the temporal bone dissection course. It involves a packed day of live surgery and presentations, where we find we learn as much from the delegates, as we hope they learn from us.
