The Clínica Clarós Temporal Bone Dissection Courses seeks to bring practicing ENT Trainees and Specialists up to date with the latest techniques in ear surgery. Faculty will provide lectures on temporal bone anatomy, ear surgery techniques, cochlear implantation, middle ear and skull base surgery and will engage in stimulating discussions and dissection demonstrations. Under the guidance of faculty, course participants will perform dissections on two fresh temporal bones. Since 1983 we have had the oportunity of training more than 2000 ORL Residents & Specialists from Spain and different countries around the world. It is the ideal opportunity to be taught by, as well as participating in temporal bone dissection lab. We know what each participant needs.
