Exciting News About Our 2021 Course!
We’re back and excited to host the Microvascular Fellowship Boot Camp for the 2021 season! The course is open to fellows from AHNS head and neck microvascular programs throughout the U.S. and Canada. Due to safety concerns caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, all participants must be fully vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination when registering.
About the Boot Camp
The mission of the Microvascular Fellowship Boot Camp is to expose current head and neck microvascular fellows to both common and uncommon free flap procedures, indications, techniques and nuances of insetting including soft tissue and boney inset plating and to expose residents to head and neck anatomy and ablative procedures.
This unique course is centered on a defect-oriented approach in fresh cadavers. Cadavers will have pre-existing defects and participants will be required to design and reconstruct the defects (including osteotomies, plating, soft tissue inset, etc.) for each head and neck subsite. Lessons will be led by an outstanding group of faculty from high volume training centers all over the country. There will be 16 stations with two fellows and one faculty member minimum per cadaver to maximize the educational experience. There will be one prosection station. In addition, we offer a web-based learning aspect with reading materials prior to the start of the course. All lectures and dissections will be recorded and available following the course.
We offer this wonderful learning opportunity to 32 fellows free of charge. Funding is provided by The Ohio State University, Case Western Reserve University and industry sponsors.
