Perceiving the importance of providing healthcare at a “distance,” the University of Santo Tomas Hospital (USTH) favored a three (3)-day telemedicine session, assisted by the Philippine Research, Education and Government Information Network (PREGINET), from 28 to 30 November 2013 at the Benavides Cancer Institute Auditorium. The telemedicine session titled, “Microscopic and Endoscopic Temporal Bone Postgraduate Course with Live Surgery” was organized by the USTH Department of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, in cooperation with the Philippine Society of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery. The activity aimed to gather foreign and local experts to further medical education by sharing knowledge and skills in said sub-specialty.
