I am glad that I had this opportunity to attend the Penang Intensive hands on MSK course

for Radiologists .

 

Professionally it was an immense learning experience.The course was in true sense as intensive in nature and the additional benefit I personally derived from seeing you work and your problem solving approach.

 

I think that" problem solving approach" impressed me the most and probably will stay with me for rest of my life.

 

 

Extending my stay for clinical attachment assisted  me the most,as it gave me the chance to practice the technique and also provided me with the opportunity to absorb the vast knowledge of Prof.John Geroge gained  over a period of  18  yrs.

 

Seeing him work was a sheer pleasure.

 

Working with him was fun,exciting and a true learning experience,where you can go to the core of subject,integrate,anatomy ,pathology and radology and come out with an answer.

 

 

I highly recommend attachments with him for clinical fellowships for all those who want to really understand MSK radiology.  It is going to be a wonderful learning curve I can vouch for.

Due to the heavy expenses incurred to certify the course under  the Medical Progress Institute of Great Britain under a local company the Course Director Prof Dr John George has obtained the certification through the Malaysian Association of Sports Medicine for CPD points .
 
The savings from the course not having to pay the 2011 sponsor so much to run the meeting will be passed on to various delegates in the form of an educational grant and reduction in fees  especially those working in public institutions in not so developed countries and first 10 final year radiology trainees to apply for the course and reduction in fees for many subgroups.  Nearly 20 CME points will be accorded to this course according to Malaysian Medical Council present rulings which should be reciprocal.
 
As in most countries you can hand in your certificate to your Medical Council with the CME points from the Malaysian Medical Council printed on the certificate to get reciprocal or more points from your own Medical Council.

Both Radiology and Physician Courses  will be certified by the Malaysian Association of Sports Medicine for 2012  and the Radiologists course will be held from March 21st to 24th and the Physicians course 25th and 26th  2012 .   Once again educational grants are being awarded to University lecturers from IndoChina and poorer countries.
 
The course structure will be modified based on feedback from the recent course to have more MRI video hyperlinks to the lecture material so actual examples can be viewed as soon as the theory is done and this should assist in the homework.    Apart from this the course will maintain its high standard of materials and quality of materials provided

TESTIMONIAL ON HOW MSK COURSE AND ATTACHMENT HELPED ME TO LAND A COVETED JOB
 
 
 
This is to testify that the Penang course helped me a lot to prime myself to the practice of MSK and the finer points we need to appreciate before labeling the more obvious pathologies glaring us at face.

It helped me understand the essentials of MSK we need to know before we start reporting the cases,and one month with professor helped me appreciate the intensive nature of the course.

Though before joining the course,I had made my mind to practice MSK exclusively but i was not sure of,whether I will really be able to do that and whether people will accept me as an subspecialist or not,but it was professor's self-belief that made leap so high and achieve my objective.

Though I have to struggle a lot in initial period of my practice, but by God's grace I did get a platform to show my work.And now Iam practicing what I wanted to and with a belief that I have an advantage of the training very few persons get.

 Testimonial No 1

Dear Prof Dr John George,

 

Overall the International Intensive Hands on Musculoskeletal MRI and Ultrasound from conference/ workshop from March 23-26th  was a great experience and your passion for teaching is unmatched, really enjoyed each bit of it and actually took back a lot of pearls which would have taken years of mistakes to learn otherwise. If you ever want to do second stage course it will be great as well. Morning sessions on discussing cases with looking at anatomy and each structure and developing habit to go by the checklist were one which I especially looked forward to. Kindly forward me the group photo and one or two more photos of the event so that I can on my website as well.

 

Regards and my best wishes for all your future workshops. It was lovely to have met!!
