OVERALL LEARNING OBJECTIVES

This meeting provides learners in the specialty of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery (including general and subspecialty otolaryngologists as well as resident and medical student trainees) a significant opportunity to attend sessions of interest and acquire further understanding and knowledge in areas of perceived / unperceived weakness in the specialty. All branches of the specialty, including head & neck oncology, laryngology, rhinology, otology, neurotology, pediatric otolaryngology, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, general otolaryngology, sleep disorders, and medical education, are part of the program.

Building on the success of last year, we will run three concurrent sessions of workshops and podium presentations. New this year is the addition of an extra day of general, subspecialty and resident sessions, as well as a series of debates. This provides delegates with a great variety of learning opportunities. As always, there will be ample time allotted for enhanced dialogue, discussion and interaction with the various presenters. In keeping with the theme of this year’s meeting, guest speakers will present their areas of expertise through plenary talks and workshops. Increased numbers of workshops will give each learner practical and adoptable knowledge to use immediately in practice when they return home. We will also have a series of pre-convention courses designed to give impactful hands-on experience to attendees. Also addressed in this year’s program will be workshops and presentations for the community-based practitioners, continued information on technological advancements in education, and popular updates in a variety of topics.

Given the limited demand for a Blackberry app at previous meetings, we did not develop a native Blackberry application for this year’s meeting. There is a possible workaround however, and any Blackberry users interested in running the meeting app should contact Scott directly.

Finally, thank you to everyone who gave their feedback of the app at last year’s meeting, as this resulted in many improvements to this year’s app.
