It includes instructional sessions for theoretical background by experts and supervised whole-body cadaver dissection. A major feature is to investigate the anatomy relevant to an array of head and neck surgical procedures and the techniques of regional and free flap raising on specimens, which have been specifically prepared to preserve tissue planes and simulate real surgery. Furthermore, it is an honor to announce the participation of Prof. Jonathan Clark (Chris O’Brien Life House, Sidney, Australia) during step-by-step dissection.
