ASOHNS ASM 2016 - Back to Basics - Sunday 6 - Tuesday 8 March 2016

Invitation to Attend

I would like to extend a warm invitation to every ASOHNS member and ENT surgeon to join me in Melbourne for the ASOHNS meeting in March 2016.

Otolaryngology has progressed a long way since its inception and has become very prominent within the surgical community.

I would like those attending the meeting to discuss some of the basic principles of both surgery and professionalism within our society.

None of us doubt that education has allowed us to develop our increasing scientific knowledge and I would like to reflect upon where we have come from, where we are now and where we are going.

“Back to Basics” is the theme of this meeting.

This is not to suggest our society is simple, but to explore and solidify the depth of our foundation so that we can continue to build.

I welcome you all to celebrate what we have achieved and confront the challenges ahead together.

ASOHNS ASM 2016 Convenor

President's Welcome

The ASOHNS ASM has continued its reputation as a high-quality meeting providing excellent opportunities for continued learning and development and peer interaction for our members, trainees and visitors.

The meeting’s theme "Back to Basics" will focus on our foundations of OHNS practice through a scientific program comprising plenary, sub-specialty and special interest concurrent sessions.

Our own local experts and invited international guest speakers will update us on latest techniques and developments together with the practical, "how I do it" information.

The main program will be supported by specialist, interactive breakfast sessions and satellite meetings offering more relaxed and practical opportunities for increasing skills and exchanging information and ideas with presenters and fellow attendees.

Those of you residing interstate and overseas will have much to enjoy from visiting our host city, Melbourne.

Named as the most liveable city in the Global Liveability Survey for four years in a row, Melbourne offers a range of arts activities, sports events, world-renowned wining and dining and excellent shopping.

Being relatively flat, the city is easy to navigate by foot or via our extensive public transport network including a tram system that is the largest of its type in the world.

We encourage visitors to bring their partners and families, extend their stay and enjoy all that Melbourne and its magnificent environs have to offer.

I look forward to welcoming you all to the ASOHNS ASM 2016.

Neil Vallance
ASOHNS President
