SingHealth ENT Head & Neck Instructional Course Fortnight

Since 1995, Singapore General Hospital (SGH) Department of Otolaryngology has been organising a back-to-back series of ENT cadaveric dissection workshops. Over time, it has expanded to the period of a fortnight, covering more subspecialty areas. For the past few years, the annual SGH ENT Instructional Course Fortnight has been a highlight of the department's educational activities and a staple for residents and practicing ENT surgeons around the region looking for hands-on dissection, supervised by renown international and local faculty. The courses provide ample opportunities for participants to progress at their own level, starting from basic surgical steps but also covering advanced techniques for those wanting to pursue subspecialty practice.

​Stroboscopy Workshop and Laryngology Case Discussion

This is the 5th Stroboscopy / Laryngology course to be organized with the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) ENT Fortnight. The SGH ENT Fortnight is a highlight of our department’s calendar, as it is a time where junior doctors and specialists alike can network and learn from local and international faculty and peers. For a relatively small but rapidly advancing sub-specialty like Laryngology, opportunities like this are even more important and impactful.

In this year’s edition of the Laryngology course, there is once again an emphasis on the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed in a multi-disciplinary Voice Clinic and Videostroboscopic examination which is the foremost tool in our diagnostic armamentarium. In addition to the common conditions encountered in daily practice, a particular focus this year will be on Laryngeal Dysfunction and its multi-faceted presentation and management.
