A ‘MASTERCLASS’ in ear, nose and throat surgery was beamed from South Yorkshire around the globe – delivering lectures in cutting edge treatments to doctors from Mumbai to Miamu.

An incredible 2,500 surgeons from across 52 countries tuned into the ENT Masterclass, logging into the webcast to view slides, video and audio from the guest speaks – all for free.

The project was launched by Peter Reading, interim chief executive of Doncaster and Bassetlaw NHS Foundation Trust, and Mr Shahed Quaraishi, who directed the class.

Speakers from across the country delivered lectures on paediatrics, otology – the anatomy and physiology of the ear – rhinology – the study of the nose – and the head and neck, from a base within Doncaster Royal Infirmary. There was also a guest lecture delivered by Alan Johnson, President ENT-UK.

New for the 2011 event was an element called the Cyber Textbook on Operative Surgery, launched by Professor Pat Bradley. The textbook was developed by the ENT Masterclass team and offers another free training resource for ENT surgeons worldwide which embraces the latest developments in technology.

The resource contains about 150 surgical videos, mostly under 10 minutes each, which demonstrate varying techniques according to local preferences.

Mr Quraishi said: “This years’ National ENT Masterclass was the busiest ever and the live course webcast has matured into a runaway success.

“Feedback received is testimony to the high standard and respect that the ENT Masterclass faculty has achieved in the national and international ENT surgeons’ community.

“The free international webcast and the Cyber Text book has elevated the ENT Masterclass course to new heights and is a key event in every trainee’s diary.”
