Section of OtoRhinoLaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery (ORL HNS), Registrar’s Prize Meeting, Friday, 21st April 2023

21/04/2023 in Faithlegg Hotel Conference Centre, Waterford

Dear Colleagues,

Both Prof. Ivan Keogh and I, would like to thank all who attended and supported the Spring RAMI ORL HNS meeting on Friday 21st April 2023 in Faithlegg Hotel, Waterford.

In particular, I would like to say a special thank you to Prof. Rory Mc Conn Walsh, Mr Mohamed Amin and Prof. John Russell, who without hesitation agreed to support this year’s RAMI meeting’s academic content by organising either a round table session and/or presentation which I think was a great success with the attendees. Thank you also to those who participated in the round table sessions in rhinology and otology.

Mr Abbad Toma, this year’s guest speaker (Consultant Rhinologist & Facial Plastic Surgeon, St Georges & Kingston University, London) gave a lovely presentation on his clinical experience of orbital decompression and was a great addition to this year’s rhinology panel. I suspect some of our trainees will be in contact with Mr Toma in the future re. a future rhinology & facial plastic fellowship. Prof. John Russell, (CHI @ Crumlin) gave us a fantastic insight into paediatric airway disease and a flavour of the type of challenging cases John has been involved in managing during his many years as a paediatric ENT surgeon.

Well done to all the trainees who presented and in particular to Dr Rory O Neill, this year’s Spring RAMI oral presentation winner. The annual RAMI Spring gala dinner was a great success this year and I’m glad to see the numbers are increasing year on year, with of course, the usual stalwarts attending. It’s a fantastic opportunity for trainees and trainers to socialise and build future working relationships.

Hope to see you in December (RVEEH Friday 8th Dec) and for those who could not make this year’s Spring RAMI meeting, perhaps you will consider 2024! ( Friday 26th April 2024, venue TBC). The RAMI ENT section needs you to support it in order for it to continue to thrive and survive!
