Zeer interessante cursus, goede ondersteuning vanuit het team gastroenterologie van Aalst met zeer veel teaching. Het zou aangenaam zijn geweest indien er vegetarisch eten voorzien was, maar toen ik hier achter de receptie voor vroeg zijn we wel onmiddellijk goed geholpen geweest.

- Nuttige, praktische theoretische les, zeker voor zij die net zelf gaan beginnen met endoscopie. - Ruime gelegenheid om te oefenen, zelfs in de namiddag als de hele groep samen kon oefenen waren er voldoende modellen. Het is ook leerzaam om anderen het te zien doen. - Leuk dat er verschillende materialen/technieken beschikbaar waren om te oefenen zoals een biopsies nemen, poliepectomie met lis, submucosale injectie... - Professionele begeleiding zowel op medisch vlak als technische ondersteuning. - Ruim aantal begeleiders die onmiddellijk feedback geven en bijsturen. Bij elk dierenmodel stond een (of 2) arts/vertegenwoordiger. Dit vond ik een sterk pluspunt! - Ik zou de cursus zeker aanraden.

Very satisfactory course! The colonoscopy models need some work (colon preparation was not perfect), but overall very well presented and nice introduction to the technique.
