Penn Flap Dissection Course 2017
We are very pleased to announce the Penn Flap Dissection Course to be held on August 4 - 6, 2017 at the Human Tissue Laboratory of the University of Pennsylvania. The Penn Human Tissue Laboratory is a state of the art facility where we will have demonstrations of flap dissections by leaders in the field of reconstructive microsurgery. This course will focus on dissection of microsurgical flaps of the head and neck, breast, trunk, extremity and hand/feet. There will also be ample time for independent dissection.
The course will have a didactic component that illustrates the use of the flaps through clinical cases and vignettes. It will be an opportunity for residents, fellows, and junior attendings to see and hear the experts dissect common and complex flaps used in microsurgical practice and understand their utilization through clinical examples. This course is meant to be an interactive experience for the attendees with time to ask the experts!
Registration will be limited to 4 attendees per cadaver to ensure small intimate groups to allow for questions and answers during dissections. We anticipate the course to fill quickly!
Attendees should plan on arriving on Friday afternoon, August 4 and the course will end at 5:00 pm on Sunday, August 6. Registration sign-in and course materials will be available Friday, August 4, 4:00 – 6:00 pm and also on Saturday morning. The two-day course will start each day at 7:00 am, breakfast and lunch will be provided. Course material will include a program book with dissection guides and relevant articles for flaps. A detailed course schedule will be posted soon.
We look forward to a great weekend of dissections and discussions in Philadelphia!
