The consequences of insufficient training or "first time surgeries" performed directly on a real patient are unacceptable because it is, each time, the patient who has to pay the price. Recent technological advances in the field of digital technology and 3D printing have allowed the advent of innovative educational tools using simulation and allowing to meet the recommendations of French National Authority for Health (HAS) in its 2012 report: "Never the first time on the patient! OTO twin is the result of a transdisciplinary collaboration between the health sector, the engineering sciences and the multi-material 3D printing industry. This digital twin of human temporal bone allows the progressive acquisition by future ENT specialists of the anatomical knowledge and technical skills necessary for the practice of ear surgery, cochlear implantation and otoneurosurgery, promoting the development of qualitative and safe professional practices.
