EST-US OTOLARYNGOLOGY-HEAD AND NECK SURGERY JOINT MEETING 2023

Dear Colleagues and Friends, It is a great honour for Estonian Society of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery to announce that we are organizing a Joint 2023 Summer Meeting in close partnership with the American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF), in my beloved city of Tallinn. The main goal of the meeting will be to bring the scientific knowledge and experience closer to our colleagues, enabling them to make the most of the best education that will be delivered by the masters of different fields of otolaryngology and head & neck surgery, audiology and somnology. As far as the scientific aspect is concerned, in addition to the main topics that are always present in different international meetings, we hope to increase the relationships with other National Scientific Societies and with colleagues from Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Sweden and hopefully from the other countries as well. The list of faculty is truly excellent so we are looking forward to the wonderful Summer Meeting. With great friendship and affection, I hope to see you all in August 2023, confident in delivering a great event

    Gala-dinner Venue

    House of Black Heades (Mustpeade maja) 

    Tallinn’s Brotherhood of the Blackheads was guild for unmarried merchants and shipowners.

    There is no clear answer as to the founding of the brotherhood. The oldest original document mentioning the Blackheads is the brotherhood’s contract with the Tallinn Dominican monastery from March 28, 1400. This contract affirms the Blackheads’ right to the religious paraphernalia they had deposited at the Dominican St. Catherine’s Church. It is surmised, that the contract, an important occasion for the Brotherhood, must have been entered into shortly after the brotherhood was formed. Therefore the founding date of the brotherhood has been set a few months earlier, in the year 1399.
