Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It gives me great pleasure to invite you to the 8th Foundation Surgical Skills Course in Otolaryngology (FSSCO). As with past installments, this annual workshop promises to be an exciting and educational event.
This workshop will be held from the 29th January 2018 to the 6th February 2018, and I am delighted to announce that it will be held at the newly-refurbished and state-of-the-art Center for Advanced Clinical & Surgical Skills (CACS) at Changi General Hospital.
The workshop will again feature multiple instructional courses that are aimed at providing strong foundational skills and up-to-date knowledge in practical anatomy and surgery for both junior as well as practicing Otolaryngologists.
Building on the positive feedback and demand from both local and regional participants, the workshop will run over 9 days. There will be 2 days of Rhinology, 2 days of Facial Plastic, 2 days of Head & Neck Surgery, 1 day of Laryngology, and 2 days of Otology. We have the privilege of having a group of teaching faculty who are experienced subspecialists within the respective fields from all over Singapore, as well as overseas centers, that will make the quality of learning of the highest standard.
The program is deliberately designed with short lectures to highlight pertinent and practical surgical tips and to leave participants with ample cadaveric dissection time. A high instructor to participant ratio will allow close supervision and interaction during the cadaveric dissection to benefit participants from different levels of surgical background and interests.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our industry partners and sponsors for their continuing and invaluable support such that we are able to keep the course fees affordable.
I look forward very much to your early registration and to welcoming you to Singapore in January 2018!
