Otolaryngology Update 2017
Friday, March 24, 2017 – Sunday, March 26, 2017
The Starr Center
This two and a half day CME course is designed to address the practice gaps and the educational needs of general otolaryngologists. The two main foci of the course are paranasal sinus disorders and sleep-disordered breathing. However, the course also extends to the various otolaryngology subspecialties that a general otolaryngologist may encounter in his / her clinical practice such as otology, head and neck oncology, thyroid and parathyroid disorders, facial plastic, voice disorders / laryngology, and pediatric otolaryngology. The course encompasses a combination of didactic lectures and panel discussions. The topics of the lectures are selected to cover the clinical scope of practice of general otolaryngologists. The panel discussions will discuss challenging clinical cases that are chosen to complement the lectures and to help apply the knowledge acquired in the course in the clinical practice. An ample opportunity for Q&A will be provided at the end of every lecture, during as well as at the end of panel discussion, as well as during breaks when the attendees and faculty are encourage to interact freely. The first day of the course will focus on the main topics:paranasal sinus disorders and sleep-disordered breathing; the remaining one and half days will have two concurrent sessions during each half day, with each session addressing a clinical subspecialty. These sessions are scheduled so that attendees may choose the subspecialty field(s) that is pertinent to their practice, with fields that are considered complementary being scheduled in series rather than in parallel to allow the attendees to engage in both.
