The aim of this study was to develop an educational website (www.enttheatre.com) that showed common ENT operations and emergencies, in order to help improve the basic surgical ENT knowledge of medical students and junior doctors. A two-round Delphi survey was conducted to establish the contents of the website. 'Experts' who participated in the Delphi process included otolaryngology consultants and trainees, junior doctors, general practitioners, and medical students. First- and second-round Delphi response rates were 49 per cent (61/125) and 92 per cent (56/61), respectively. Our paper presents a consensus opinion on what basic surgical knowledge a medical student or junior doctor should be familiar with in otolaryngology.
