Sub-specialty Meetings

Course Overview
In addition to up to 8 hours of supervised dissection over 2 days on up to 2 bones in the RPAH Temporal Bone Laboratory, we will build on the new format started in 2013: to include engaging hands-on skills stations, when not dissecting in the Lab, and round table case discussions.

Our visiting guest of honour, Mr Patrick Axon will be providing gems and wisdom throughout.
