It is not about the idea. It is about making the idea happen.

Echoing this maxim, the genesis of World Skull Base Fellowship Diplomas was laid. What began as an idea, gathered strength by the tremendous interest that it generated in the medical fraternity. The event has grown beyond expectations bringing together specialists from various countries to the first ever course. I would like to express my sheer excitement and enthusiasm that the World Skull Base family is growing and we are all going to gather soon, in the beautiful city of Bangalore.

Skull Base Surgery involves skills in Neurosurgery, Otology, Head & Neck Surgery, Facial Plastics, Hearing and other neural rehabilitation. Gaining expertise in all these areas is an arduous task for a specialist focused in any one of these areas. Hence, for long, Skull Base Surgery has not been practiced in its entirety and it is also the reason why it lacks a structured training programme in most countries. It is this that we hope to address with these Fellowship Diplomas: to provide a structured curriculum based training programmed in both Lateral and Anterior skull base surgery.

The World Skull Base Fellowship Diplomas will be held in Lateral and Anterior Skull Base Surgery every alternating year. The modulated format has been developed to incorporate all topics in the subspecialty along with cadaveric hands on dissections.  The Lateral Skull Base Fellowship Diploma includes 90 topics, 72 hours of dissections, 60 hours of lectures & 12 hours of video sessions. The Diploma has received an overwhelming response and is showing signs of a long journey.

I look forward to welcome you all and I ascertain that you will enjoy as as much we have enjoyed bringing this together for you!
