    Abstract

    The field of rhinology is an exciting area with new surgical techniques constantly introduced. The way surgical skills are taught is changing with use of surgical simulators. Training programs are evolving to a competency-based model, and rhinology-specific tools need to be developed to assess the endoscopic sinus surgery skills of trainees. There is a need for accreditation of rhinology fellowships to ensure fellows receive advanced training. This article reviews these issues, including new and alternative methods for rhinologic surgical training.
