The Department of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery and the Division of Continuing Medical Education of the Indiana University School of Medicine are proud to present the 102nd Annual Anatomy and Histopathology of the Head, Neck and Temporal Bone. This week-long comprehensive, interdisciplinary program is the oldest postgraduate course of any discipline in this country and the premier review of histopathology and anatomy of the head and neck.
Designed for physicians, this course reviews head and neck histopathology and anatomy with a focus on clinical application, and covers contemporary state-of-the-art management across all aspects of Otolaryngology. Lectures will be given by Indiana University faculty as well as internationally renowned distinguished guest lecturers.
Participants will have the opportunity to participate in daily cadaver dissections focusing on actual surgical techniques. Procedures covered include microvascular free tissue transfer, rhinoplasty, head and neck surgery including laryngectomy, parotidectomy, thyroidectomy, neck dissection, tympano-mastoidectomy and lateral skull base surgery, as well as endoscopic sinus and skull base surgery. Dissections will be conducted at the state-of-the-art Indiana University School of Medicine’s Surgical Skills Center that is outfitted to provide a safe environment that promotes the observation, repetition, acquisition and assessment of surgical skills. Each participant will have an opportunity to drill a mastoidectomy and perform middle ear dissections in our 16-station temporal bone lab. Finally, participants will have access to cochlear implant and ossicular reconstruction simulations.
This course is an unrivaled opportunity for participants to gain a thorough understanding of the applied anatomy of the head and neck.
