WORLD SKULL BASE FELLOWSHIP DIPLOMAS

World Skull Base provides training opportunities to doctors and medical professionals in the specialty of Skull Base Surgery. World Skull Base has launched its flagship training programme, The Fellowship Diplomas, organised at Ramaiah Advanced Learning Center, Bangalore (India) which is one of its kind and the first comprehensive curriculum based training programme launched in the specialty of Skull Base Surgery. The objective of this programme is to define the scope of Skull Base Surgery, to create a professional community of trained Skull Base surgeons and to establish Skull Base Surgery as a separate subspecialty. The Fellowship Diplomas are conducted separately in Lateral and Anterior Skull Base Surgery at different times in the year. Each module lasts 7 days and the curriculum that is spread across 2 modules covers all important topics in the subject. Dissectors are expected to attend both the modules and pass a written exam at the end of the course. Lectures will be in the forenoon and dissections in the afternoon. With over 60 hours of lectures with over 100 topics and 72 hours of dissections, this is indeed the most comprehensive course in Skull Base Surgery. The dissectors will be provided with the best and state-of-the-art equipment including high speed drills, high definition microscopes and monitors giving the dissectors an ‘in-theatre’ experience. The cadavers provided are fresh frozen and exclusively curated for the course with injections into the anterior and posterior arterial and venous systems. Faculty for the course are sourced both internationally and nationally. Over 40 top faculties, will be sharing their experience with the participants. At the end of the course, the participants will go through a written examination passing which they will be awarded a Diploma from Ramaiah University (Deemed University under the Government of India). At the end of the final module, Dissectors will also be awarded a Fellowship of the World Skull Base. 50 observers are also invited for each module.
