IV EFP Postgraduate Symposium 1-4 September 2011, Old Windsor, UK
For the first time in two weeks there were no rain clouds, the sun was shining and the EFP graduates were arriving, country by country to the U.K. Well kept gardens, opulent architecture and a welcoming reception from the Beaumont Estate, Old Windsor was the setting for this years’ EFP Postgraduate Symposium.
It was a great opportunity to meet all the graduates from different postgraduate centres and over the three day period we were fortunate enough to see a range of clinical cases from simple to complex, in addition to intriguing research projects from each centre.
I was very impressed by the quality of decision making including the clinical and theoretical reasoning behind each case presented. There were many interesting project topics, and each of them excelled in its own way.
The event was not just about exchanging scientific knowledge, but also included socialising and making contacts with fellow graduates, exactly as Prof Van der Velden had predicted in his opening speech. Personally, I have met some wonderful people, made many friends and am extremely grateful that such an opportunity was given to me. I hope everyone enjoyed the event as much as I did, and I look forward to seeing all the new friends I have made in the near future (at Europerio7 in Vienna!)
I would like to thank all the professors and supervisors from each institute for organising such a successful event. Lastly I would like to congratulate everyone for their part in the smooth running of this meeting and wish them all the best for their future careers.
