President and General Secretary's of French ENT Society welcome to IFOS World Congres 2017

The World ENT congress, taking place in Paris, in 2017, should be an essential event for the ENT worldwide community, regardless of nationality and type of practices.

With the IFOS board, we have decided to put this event under the sign of a triple mission: Diversity, Innovation and Evaluation.

- Diversity of practices and resources around the world.
- Innovation to link basic science and clinical research.
- Evaluation of quality of care, leading to worldwide guidelines.

The social program will be outstanding, focusing on Paris, the "Ville Lumière" but also on the diverse senses of the ENT field.

We are expecting you, from all over the world, to affirm the strength and dynamism of our speciality.

IFOS Paris 2017 - ENT WORLD Congress is waiting for you!

During the XIXth World Congress in Sao Paulo, the initiatives of the Educational Committee were discussed in the Executive Committee meetings of Sunday May 31st and June 4th and were approved during the General Assembly.
The paper on minimum requirements of an ENT training worldwide are combined with the initiative of Dr. Johan Fagan from Cape Town to start with an ENT training program within the Developing Countries. This training program should be totally different from the training programs in Developed Countries because of their need and possibilities and their different incidence of disease and complications. Dr. Johan Fagan developed the website Educational support for ENT surgeons in the Developing World
