1) Expose current head and neck microvascular fellows to both common and uncommon free flap procedures, indications, techniques, and nuances of insetting including soft tissue and boney inset plating.

2) Expose residents to head and neck anatomy and ablative procedures.



About the Reconstructive Course:

A unique aspect to this course is that it is centered on a defect-oriented approach in fresh cadavers. Cadavers will have pre-existing defects and the participants will be required to design and reconstruct the defects (including osteotomies/ plating/ soft tissue inset/ etc.) for each head and neck subsite.


One-on-one instruction with faculty members with full equipment available.

We put together an outstanding group of faculty from high volume training centers all over the country. We are offering this wonderful learning opportunity to a broad audience including thirty fellows free of charge. There will be sixteen stations with two fellows and one faculty member minimum per cadaver to maximize the educational experience.



There will be one prosection station. In addition, we offer a web-based learning aspect with reading material available via dropbox prior to the start of the course. All lectures and dissections will be recorded and placed on the dropbox following the course.

Projected prosection and live dissection


State-of-art audio and visual facilities
