In this episode of BackTable ENT, Dr. Gopi Shah talks with Dr. Puya Dehgani-Mobaraki, founder and president of Associazione Naso Sano, a global non-profit organization that provides free education for otorhinolaryngology and head and neck cancer physicians and trainees.
Naso Sano supports international trainees by providing them with grants for instrument kits, dissection courses, and textbooks. Dr. Dehgani-Mobaraki emphasizes the importance of surveying trainees to determine which resources and educational opportunities will best help them achieve their future goals. Another important aspect of Naso Sano is the virtual grand rounds. Although organization of these sessions can be challenging due to differing time zones, Naso Sano grand rounds sessions have reached attendance levels of up to 1000 participants. These sessions are available on a variety of platforms, including Facebook, Youtube, and Twitch. Dr. Dehgani-Mobaraki lets the medical and public community decide the topics they would like to learn about, which has included cystic fibrosis, anatomy and dissection courses, and many more diverse subjects.
Finally, the doctors discuss the duty of physicians to use their credibility and knowledge to address human rights violations and gender inequality in healthcare. Both doctors agree that marginalized populations still do not receive adequate healthcare and that small conversations with colleagues and trainees can have a great impact in resolving these matters.
