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

Echoing this maxim, the genesis of World Skull Base Foundation Fellowship Courses 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 and I would like to express my sheer excitement and enthusiasm that the World Skull Base Foundation family is growing.

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 Courses: to provide a structured curriculum based training programme in both Lateral and Anterior Skull Base Surgery.

World Skull Base Foundation Fellowship Courses will be held in Lateral and Anterior Skull Base Surgery every 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 includes over 90 topics, 72 hours of dissections, 60 hours of lectures & 12 hours of video sessions. The Anterior Skull Base Fellowship includes over 60 topics, 60 hours of dissections, 30 hours of lectures & 8 hours of video sessions.  World Skull Base Foundation Fellowship Courses have received an overwhelming response and are showing signs of a long journey.

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

Managing Director & CEO

World Skull Base Foundation

We are quite upbeat in organising this unique World Skull Base Foundation Fellowship in Skull Base Surgery at Ramaiah Advanced Learning Center. Skull Base surgery in India is yet to develop fully and proper collaboration with the Department of Neurosurgery is yet to reach the desired levels. There is no one better than Dr. Sampath Chandra Prasad Rao, the Director and the mastermind behind this course who can cause this sea change in Skull Base surgery in India to attain a whole new level. This is being reflected in the outpour of requests from delegates all over the world to register for the course. We have roped in the best of the experts in the specialty to impart the skills and knowledge required to master this field of Skull Base Surgery. Bangalore being the epicentre of medical knowledge in India is the right place to host such an International program and there is no better place than Ramaiah Advanced Learning Center to learn the cadaveric dissection skills. We welcome all the participants, faculties, experts coming from all over the world to enjoy this unique event making it a grand success.
