Just ending EADV Fostering Course in Cryosurgery with 20 fabulous residents from 11 european countries. This was an initiative of EADV Fostering Trainee Education in Dermatology & Venereology Committee with Bertrand Richert as Chairperson. Three professors joined me in this effort: George Gaitanis ( Greece), Jose Silva-Siwady (Mexico/Italy) and Janis Kisis (Latvia). Azael Freites-Martinez acted as tutor and worked hard to make things work smoothly. Simona Ovesea ( EADV Project manager) was impressive and crucial in the organization and in making sure everything was in accordance to the highest standards.
We had classes the first two days at Institut Pere Virgili (Reus) and the last day we had hands-on session at Pius Hospital of Valls. In the latter , Sergi Izquierdo-one of our super nurses at Pius Hospital de Valls- worked hard to guarantee that our pratical session worked as planned.
The residents presented their own cases, all excellent and original. We also had time to gather for social events that gave of the opportunity to get to know each other and share experiences.
I have especially enjoyed having creative and motivated people around!A wonderful experience.
Thanks to all the participants! Thanks to Institut Per Virgili and , most of all, to my Hospital (Pius of Valls) that gave me all the needed support.
