2023 Temporal Bone Beginner Course

Geneva, Switzerland

From 23 to 24 January 2023, took place the second edition of the Temporal Bone Beginner Course, directed by Prof. Pascal Senn. This workshop was built to cover young ENT surgeons’ training needs, such as:

  • Temporal bone anatomy
  • Basic surgical techniques in otology
  • Basics on simulation-based ear surgery training

We warmly thank the participants, the faculty and the sponsors for their time, their dedication and their enthusiasm which made this course so successful.

A special Thank You to Dr. Steven Arild Wuyts Andersen, Dr. Peter Trier and Dr. Andreas Frithioff from Denmark. Their expertise and their collaboration are key in the organization of this workshop, as they designed the synthetic bones and developed the simulation software used in the course.

The 2-day course offers a stepwise approach that helps validate the participant’s progress before the next stage:

  • Pre-course preparation: e-learning module, with theoretical content, videos, et evaluation
  • Day 1:  simulation-based training on virtual and 3D-printed temporal bone models
  • Day 2:  temporal bone surgery training workshops on anatomical specimens
