The Eleventh Emergencies in Head and Neck Surgery Simulation Course (March 2019). This one-day course features immersive simulations in a dedicated facility. Simulations are accompanied by seminars and group feedback. The focus of this course is on patient safety during ENT emergencies, rather than operative technique or clinical knowledge (though some technical aspects will be covered). Topics include: avoidable error; communication techniques during emergencies; good leadership and good followership. 

Immersive simulations centre on one or two attendees, who act in their current capacity (ie CT2 as CT2). You will be placed in important ENT emergency situations, some of which will only occur once or twice in a career. There will be professional facilitators playing the roles of other members of the healthcare team. There is training and feedback after each simulation session.

This course has previously counted as an ENT 'craft' course at ST3 national selection and at ARCP in some regions.



Aimed at ST1/CT1 to ST8 and Fellows in ENT and OMFS. 

The course is limited to 8 candidates and 4 observers.



£250 per candidate; £210 early bird fee 

£55 per observer; £45 early bird fee 

The fee reflects the costs of having exclusive use of the simulation suite and a large number of professional facilitators. Refreshments and lunch included.

Refund & Cancellation Policy: Until 1200 on Monday 21 January 2019, attendees may cancel for a refund, less a 20% administration cost. There is no option to defer, since courses open to non-local trainees only occur annually.  

After 1200 on Monday 21 January 2019, no refunds are available unless the attendee can arrange for a replacement paying the same fee. These rules allow us to provide viable courses with high tutor-attendee ratios at a reasonable cost. 

If we are forced to cancel the course either because of low uptake or because of circumstances beyond our control, we will contact attendees at the earliest possible time (usually at least four weeks before the course). If we are forced to cancel a course, attendees will be given a full refund but we are not liable for other costs they may have incurred.

Privacy Policy: We will only use your contact details to tell you about other courses or educational opportunities we may have. We will never sell your information to a third party. Your payment details are transmitted securely to the payment processing service (Stripe) and are never revealed to us. Should you wish to unsubscribe from any email list, please email
