Based on the exceptionally positive feedback from the past three years, I am pleased to announce that we will be hosting another Head and Neck meeting this year. Last year this conference attracted nearly 2000 delegates from 93 countries. It has received more than 95% positive feedback in all categories. This unique conference will take place via virtual portal ZOOM and in person/face to face at Royal college of surgeons, Edinburgh, UK
, this September and will focus on the evidence based management of oropharyngeal cancer/ robotic head and neck surgery within a multidisciplinary team. This conference to be based on the principles of an ‘enquiry-led teaching method’ with pre-determined learning objectives which is unique.

This conference is accredited by Royal college of surgeons Edinburgh and ENTUK (7 CPD). It is endorsed by African Head and neck society.

It will allow delegates to actively participate in asking questions about the cases and engage in deliberating potential solutions with the panel, consisting of world leading experts in the field. Keynote lectures will be delivered by internationally renowned faculty from multiple specialities.

This conference will be aimed at a broad audience from trainees in the relevant specialities through to consultants in ENT, Maxillofacial, vascular, oncology and Plastics.
