What is the CEORL-HNS?

The Confederation of the European Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, CEORL-HNS was established in 2009 with the main objective of uniting the forces of

  • EUFOS - representing all 46 European national ENT societies
  • EAORL-HNS - comprising of 15 European subspecialty societies
  • UEMS ORL Section and Board - the specialist section of the UEMS

in an effort to create one voice for ORL-HNS in Europe and beyond.
