Dear Professor Dong Wan Seo
Dear Professor Elsayed Ghoneem
I wanted to express my gratitude and let you know how fortunate I feel to have had the opportunity to attend the WEO International School of EUS training (Egyptian Chapter). I consider myself one of the lucky ones to have been able to participate in such a valuable program and wanted to express my sincere appreciation for the WISE program, especially for the way it was structured and how it progressively built upon the knowledge gained in each module. The training was superb, and I genuinely enjoyed every moment of it.
Module one, which focused on the basic knowledge of EUS, provided a solid foundation for understanding the principles and techniques involved. The content was presented in a clear and concise manner, making it easy to grasp and retain. I found this module to be extremely valuable in establishing a strong understanding of the fundamentals.
Moving on to the second module, I was impressed with how it expanded upon the knowledge gained in the first module. It delved deeper into the advanced techniques and applications of EUS, providing a more comprehensive understanding of the subject matter. The content was highly informative and incredibly useful, and I can already see the significant impact it will have on my career as an endoscopist.
The third module was the pinnacle of the training, where everything came together to provide a holistic view of EUS. It integrated the knowledge and skills acquired in the previous modules and gave us the opportunity to apply them in practical scenarios. This module truly solidified my understanding and confidence in performing EUS procedures.
I want to sincerely thank and extend my appreciation to Professor Hussein Okasha, Professor Elsayed Ghoneem, Dr. Khaled Mohamed Ragab, and Dr. Moaz Elsayed Elshair, for their efforts in organizing and delivering such a wonderful training program. Their dedication to imparting knowledge and skills about EUS is truly commendable. The content was presented in a manner that was easy to follow and understand, and I am grateful for their guidance throughout the program.
Overall, the WISE PROGRAM has been an invaluable experience for me. It has not only enhanced my knowledge and skills in EUS but has also given me the confidence to apply what I have learned in my practice. I am eager to continue my professional development in this field and look forward to any future training opportunities organized by you. I will be recommending this training to all my colleagues and friends, as I believe it is a must-attend for anyone in our field. Moreover, I would be thrilled to participate in any future training organized by you. Once again, thank you for providing me with this incredible opportunity. I am truly grateful.
