Testimonials – Basic Perioperative TEE Program
“I finished residency over 15 years ago. This program has been one of the best educational opportunities I had the honor to be a part of since that time. Thank you. The chapter on hemodynamics is one of the best written chapters I’ve read in quite a long time-succinct, informative and practical.” – Dr Joe Arndt
“I must admit that when I was finally able to access the tutorials I found them very informative. The topics were presented in a very easy to understand and retain format. This was supported by the structure of the assessments. I had “fun” doing this course and learned a bit in the process. I really liked the fact all of the echo studies were not perfect. This certainly mimics real life in that either because of body habitus or viewing conditions we cannot always have perfect studies. Thank you for your help in getting this going. I would definitely recommend this course to others.” – Dr Steven Schmidt
