FOR YOUNG ENTS
High -level education in Otology
Otology Class is a group of European ENT surgeons offering education in otology and some lateral skull base. For this meeting the focus will be on Young ENT ear surgeons and their needs.
Providing easy accessible education
The aim of our group is providing easy accessible education for all ENT trainee’s and ENT surgeons. To ensure this goal we like to offer close-to-home and afforable education. The teachers of Otology Class think it is important to educate in an interactive setting, a good mix of teaching and time for answering questions of the participants. Bringing your own cases will be promoted.
Started in 2012
Otology Class started in 2012 as an idea of Paul Merkus and Maurizio Falcioni. Since then several European cities have hosted the course. If you like to see an impression of those courses go to the History pages.
The teachers of the first courses have built the program and the friendly ‘soul’ of the course.
