There are small things to improve: It would be good to provide the theoretical background either before the course via a Videocall or to use the time before the pigs are prepared. At least the theoretical basis for the practical training should be provided before the actual training.

The course would benefit from a bit more structure on the first day especially upon arrival. Attendees were left without direction for a while with small ad hoc discussions and video sharing specific to the procedure that wasn’t inclusive of everyone. More didactic information around equipment and set up requirements for the startup and administration of the procedure in the OR would be appreciated as well.

The team was great, very useful content. Transportation was limited to 1 or 2 drivers so we had to all squeeze into 1 van which was too much.. Next year I would recommend not to exceed 5 participants per car.
