£325 for dissector

£150 for non-dissectors

Currently there are 12 places available for dissectors and 6 places for non-dissectors.
Trainees with a Severn deanery number will be given a discounted rate (exact amount to be decided once places are filled). This is courtesy of generous funding from the Severn Postgraduate School of Surgery.

Dissections will be on fresh frozen cadavers. The course is aimed at trainees of all surgical specialties with an interest in head & neck surgery. The level is geared towards ST4 and above. Therefore, dissector places will be given primarily to trainees at this level or higher (dependant on numbers of applicants) while non-dissector places will be open to all.
