Riham AFIFI, Egypt
My name is Riham. I’m an Egyptian. Two years ago I moved to Dubai & I currently work in Dubai Hospital as an oculoplastic surgeon. I got to know about ESASO, by accident, searching through the internet, & when I talked to my professors & seniors I was encouraged by how they described it, being very efficient, useful & promising. I had the privilege to join the oculoplastics module, in Malta, January 2014, as a first step. Attending at ESASO was a marvellous experience for me; everything was extremely well organized, very user-friendly, & meticulously prepared, starting from the arrangements & communication during booking & registration, to the arrival at the hotel, to the transportation & till classes, it was all exceeding my expectations. The lectures were very well structured & covered every aspect we meet in practice. It was also updated with the latest & most recent advances & techniques in the field. At ESASO we had a great opportunity to interact deeply with very well renowned & established surgeons & professors, who have exerted every effort to be useful & helpful, I’m sure each & everyone of us felt, as I did, that he (she) was the most important of all the attendees. The module was also a great opportunity to connect with our colleagues from every part of the world, learn from each other’s practices, as well as customs & traditions. I would definitely continue with more ESASO modules, going next for the Cornea module in Lugano.
