Turkish surgeons will be trained in this center


Turkish Oto Rino Laryngology Academy (TORLAK) Surgical Anatomy and Distance Education Center was opened in Ankara University Technology Development Zone (TEKNOKENT) Gölbaşı Campus. Dr. Ozgur Yigit, “Distance Education Laboratory of Surgical Anatomy and said that only in Turkey and surrounding countries. Prof. Dr. Özgür Yiğit presented a plaque of appreciation to those who contributed to the project, the ribbon was cut and TORLAK Surgical Anatomy and Distance Education Center was opened. Dr. Babür Küçük said that the subject of the project is the establishment and development of distance education laboratories for the education and training of ear-nose-throat, head and neck and skull base surgery in cadavers.

Giving information about the project, Küçük said: “TORLAK Health Incubation Center, 1000 square meters closed area where all infrastructure, superstructure, mechanical, electrical and internet lines are completed, anatomy laboratory, plasticine laboratory, logistics areas, distance education studio and conference halls, It consists of 3500 square meters of landscaped open area.

President of Turkish Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Association Prof. Dr. Özgür Yiğit, ”Anatomy education and cadaver dissection are among the foundations of medicine. This education has been available since the beginning of medical history. Cadaver dissection in the Ottoman period started in the 1840s during the reign of Abdülmecit. Although anatomy and virtual cadaver trainings have been developed with model and computer programs, cadaver support still maintains its importance in medical undergraduate and specialty education.

This project has an important justification. Cadavers, which are the most important training material for surgical treatment of head and neck diseases, are hardly procured in our country. Most of the cadavers, which can be supplied far below the amount needed by our country, are imported, and a small part is obtained from local donations. For the efficient use of these cadavers, creating a laboratory with the infrastructure that ensures the continuity of the cold or chemical chain, which is necessary for the storage of cadavers, procuring, transporting, preserving and using them completely in accordance with ethical rules and regulations, surgical dissection and electronic / optical materials that require technology. must be provided and kept ready at all times. In addition, periodic courses and graduate programs can be organized by preparing three-dimensional plasticized anatomy models, written and visual educational materials. ” said.
