“Saturday Night Live With ISUOG” As SANA and Aboujaoude Hospital Live Stream ISUOG’s Basic Training Course from Montreal 10 October 2015

A grand celebration it was, and an unforgettable Saturday night, as 38 delegates gathered at the Aboujaoude Hospital’s Auditorium to commemorate ISUOG’s 25th Anniversary. For the occasion, and for the first time ever, ISUOG live-streamed its basic training course to various satellites across the globe, with over 1000 total delegates, and one of which was Lebanon’s SANA/Aboujaoude Satellite.

 

 

With the 7 hour time difference, it was uncertain as to how many attendees would participate and it was such an encouraging and pleasant surprise to see the 35 delegates, representing physicians and residents (both ob/gyn and radiology), who stayed glued to their seats well up until 10:30pm, Lebanon time, despite our internet challenges...

 

The mood was festive here in Lebanon with balloons and ISUOG banners around the auditorium, and the celebratory ISUOG Logo worn as pins by the delegates. The afternoon started with registration and then Imad Aboujouade, MD welcomed the attendees. Subsequently, ISUOG Ambassador and SANA’s Reem S. Abu-Rustum, MD, introduced ISUOG, its mission, outreach and programs and presented SANA Medical NGO’ goals and accomplishments.

 

The pre-test was then taken by the attendees as the connection was established directly with Montreal! And though this was the 3rd live-streaming activity, it was truly surreal to be at the World Congress all the way from Lebanon! The program was most concise, yet incredibly comprehensive,as the experts condensed years of practice and experience into the most practical tips and pearls. In addition, attendees were able to post their questions directly to the faculty in Montreal.

 

The feedback was most encouraging and the SANA/Aboujaouade team promised to continue these educational activities, enabled by ISUOG and its most committed, dedicated team with its futuristic vision. They have truly impacted the global practice of ultrasound as we know it, and have set the stage for a most promising future in ultrasound education…
