We are grateful to the following people and organizations for making this Manual possible: 

  • Vanderbilt University Medical Center for hosting the website and for IT support:
  • Johan Fagen, Editor of University of Cape Town’s Developing World ENT website, for inspiration and valuable advice. We have modeled the Manual after his work. The website is an invaluable resource:
  • Our mentors and teachers, especially John and Margaret Tarpley
  • Our patients, especially the ones who have allowed us to operate on them. You are the reason we have the experience and knowledge to write this Manual.
