Feedback from 2015 participants

• Excellent approach, amazing individualized teaching. Discussion based on scientific evidence and how we do it in our hospitals was fostered and achieved. Content application in clinical rounds. Translation form studies to the bed-side of topics.
The best teaching experience so far
Great atmosphere. A privilege to receive three daily long lectures in such a small group from esteemed intensivists was very stimulating. Active participation was welcomed, excellent unit, very relaxed and stimulating atmosphere, nice people.

Feedback from 2014 participants

• Great experience – learned a lot, not just about infectious diseases. Useful discussions about systems, people and change management, organisational factors and a range of relevant topics.  Extremely intellectually stimulating and very enjoyable.
Very well thought about programme I found it a very positive move especially interaction with other trainees from different countries and the exchange of practical experiences was very good.
I would love to participate in another fellowship… Of course, I’m very sad that I will not have the opportunity to repeat this fantastic experience, as it is the right thing to give this opportunity to someone new. Thanks for all. Great experience!
