By the end of the session, the junior residents were buzzing with new knowledge on how to interpret the finer points and the intricacies of ECGs. This was a very worthwhile teaching session. The following day, Dr Shah taught the junior and senior residents about the basics of echocardiography. He then demonstrated echo such as 2D, M-mode, Doppler and Tissue echocardiography.
All in all, it was a great two-day teaching session and despite this, Dr Shah was only able to cover a fraction of his course, and he has much to be able to offer the residents in this hospital and throughout Japan today and in the future. It is hoped that Dr Shah will continue coming back to Japan for many years yet!! :)
