Australian and NZ Meetings

Our Faculty is led by Professor P-J Wormald who has a Rhinology interest.  Professor PJ Wormald is a recognized international leader and expert in rhinology.  One of his major interests has been the development of new techniques for teaching endoscopic sinus surgery anatomy and techniques.  He is widely acclaimed as a teacher of excellence and is invited to lecture nationally and internationally.

The rest of the Faculty is made up of very experienced and highly trained surgeons, most of whom have done Rhinology Fellowships.  This blend of youth and experience ensure a high level of experienced supervision for all dissectors.
