The Live and Ancillary Course Committee of the American Rhinologic Society (ARS) would like to announce the Seventh Annual ARS Resident Rhinology Dissection Course.  This course is dedicated to instruction of relevant anatomy and surgical techniques in the dissection of the sinuses and skull base.   This course is open only to Otolaryngology residents-in-training.

The course will be held preceding the ARS Annual Meeting at the the Omni Hotel in Nashville, TN on September 28th & 29th, 2023. This will include both didactic lectures as well as a cadaver dissection lab. Additionally, there will be a reception held exclusively for the residents attending this course and ARS leadership, which will be an excellent networking opportunity for the residents.

This year we will offer both a junior resident and senior resident level track. Simultaneous didactic and cadaveric lab sessions will be held from 12pm-5pm on Thursday, September 28th and from 7:30am-12:30pm on Friday, September 29th.  The resident and faculty reception will follow the afternoon session on Thursday, September 28th

This is a unique experience for those residents interested in rhinology fellowship as well as those who may simply want exposure to the faculty of national rhinologic experts and hands-on practice with rhinologic procedures.  This course is NOT intended for incoming ARS fellows who have previously matched and are already scheduled to complete the ARS fellows course in the Spring of 2024.

It is FREE for residents attending the ARS meeting. However, we have only a limited number of cadaveric stations and thus we are registering residents in order of application. In order to ensure attendance once a resident has registered, we will requiring an application form to be filled out and signed by both the resident and residency program director. If the resident registers but does not attend and has not given us notice at least 1 month prior to the meeting, they will not be eligible for future courses.

We are excited to be able to offer this to residents attending the fall meeting this year, and hope you share this opportunity with residents in all years of your training program.

NOTE: The course is now filled. We thank you for your interest. Be sure to join the ARS as a Resident member to get notified for next year's course!
