BSMS hosts international surgical course
Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) has hosted a two-day specialist surgical course in the Medical School building on the Sussex campus.
The course this week was part of the 6th International Congress of the World Federation of Skull Base Societies, which was held in Brighton in conjunction with the 10th European Skull Base Society Congress.
The course, ‘Open vs endoscopic: A comparison of skull base approaches’, was held in the BSMS anatomy laboratory, which hosts undergraduate and postgraduate teaching as well as specialist courses and research projects.
Organised by Carl Hardwidge (consultant neurosurgeon at the Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust), the hands-on, practical course was led by two top neurosurgeons from Pittsburgh, USA and attracted participants from around the globe.
Professor Darrrell Evans, Head of Anatomy at BSMS, commented: “It was a real privilege to have this course within the School and was recognition of the national and international profile anatomy at BSMS has achieved in its relatively short life.”
Professor Evans and Professor Jon Cohen, the Dean of BSMS, were invited to take part in the platform party at the launch of the four-day multi-disciplinary congress, ‘Inspiration, education and exploration of the future’.
The congress, from 16-19 May, included keynote debates on controversial topics; vignettes from skull base pioneers; round-table discussions; expert panels on specific diseases; focus groups on advances in surgical techniques and diagnostic developments; and instructional courses by world experts.
