This exciting new interactive course will train you in the emerging and expanding use of endoscopy for diagnosis and treatment of external and middle ear disease in small animals. The course is delivered by world renown instructors, who have pioneered translation of the cutting edge of human ear medicine to the veterinary world.

The course includes theoretical learning, and training in practical skills using cadaveric material. You will learn how the endoscope has revolutionized otological diagnosis, in particular in the recognition of surgical disease commonly misclassified as dermatological.

You will be trained in endoscopic therapy, including trans-canal washout, instrumentation, and delivery of medication. You will be trained in the detailed endoscopic anatomy of the ear and the use of endoscopic dissection in bulla osteotomy for treatment of intractable middle ear pathology. You will also be taught acquisition and interpretation of CT imaging, and the use of CT data for optical image guidance for surgical localisation of the bulla in the dog.
