“The most important and attractive part of the 12h Echo Hong Kong was the live demonstration and hands-on workshops. The conference aimed primarily to promote training and education to medical professionals and colleagues in the clinical applications in echocardiography. Then they can translate it into better patient care, which is the main purpose in the medical profession”, Prof. Lau said. ”Our goal was also to encourage young fellows or trainees in cardiology to share and learn together with their colleagues. The other highlight was that the Echo Hong Kong had a very good partnership with faculties ad delegates from America, Europe, Asia Pacific regions, to lead the meeting to a very high level and to a big success”, Co-Director concluded.

“This is one of the editions where we are not focusing only on the technique of echocardiography but also how do you employ it in clinical cardiology and with the support of Fondazione Internazionale Menarini we are also bringing in clinical masters who are going to give us educational information about common diseases in Asia, in America and in Europe - Prof. Bijoy Khandheria, International Co-Directors explained - the workshops are designed for emerging leaders, so they can learn and teach when they go back to their countries just because not everybody can come to HK. So they come here, they learn and also learn the art of teaching and then they can go back on own country and teach”.
