You may be interested to learn that FIMF has established a new E-Learning website, the FIMF Video Library. The Library contains the 3D videos used by Prof. Ugo Fisch during the Zurich practical courses in Microsurgery of the Temporal Bone (Otology) and Skull Base. The videos have been re-edited and each scene has the reference to the related Figure and Text of Prof. Fisch’s books.

The teaching material can be accessed on Android-Smartphones for Members of the FIMF Video Library. The Membership is free once you've registered yourself and purchased your initial voucher. The initial voucher has a value of US$ 50 and can be exchanged for video subscriptions. You can see the remaining value of your voucher in your user profile, it will never exceed. So you're free to decide when to use that value for video subscriptions. However, any refund is excluded.

Members can watch the videos covering the most important microsurgical techniques presented at the FIMF yearly courses online where ever they are. Subscription periods for each video are one day, a week or a month and the cost for each depends on the duration of the video. Example for Infratemporal fossa approach type A anatomical dissection which takes 35 minutes:

  • 1 Day: US$ 7,50
  • 1 Week: US$ 15,00
  • 1 Month: US$ 45,00

For adequate use of the 3D videos the members must however have the required Viewers (VR Glasses).
