This program is an extended training format dedicated to trainees and neurosurgeons or otolaryngologists who intend to spend from 2-4 weeks developing, improving, and refining their dissection skills and practicing specific and complex neurosurgical or otolaryngology approaches inside our laboratory.

The lab will offer 1 to 4 openings each month for those planning to attend and perform dissections under guidance of our lab staff. No requirement prior experience regarding dissection, photography techniques or post-processing of images will be necessary.

The program will provide specimens and necessary supplies for the dissections. The practice will take place in the laboratory from Monday to Friday during business hours (8am to 5pm).  

All the dissections will be mentored by a PhD anatomist and an attending surgeon.
