The course has additional interest to demonstrate techniques which have been used increasingly in current clinical practice, such as intra-operative electrophysiological monitoring of the facial nerve.
Another aspect to note is the availability of at least three temporal bones fresh (not frozen and preserved in formaldehyde), which highly values the anatomical exhibition and conservation of structures that will expose and dissect.

Ensure that otolaryngologists, and in particular residents, can get familiar with anatomy and learn basic surgical techniques and some more advanced surgical techniques that take place in the temporal bone.

Assessment Method
Individual practical assessment.
