The inaugural course of BAPIO Training Academy was a thundering success at Basildon and Loughborough.
BAPIO Training Academy in collaboration with All India Institute of Medical Sciences and Academic College of Emergency Experts (ACEE) organised a course to train delegates in using ultrasonography as an adjunct to trauma resuscitation. Prof. Bhoi the course director said “Sonography is like a torch that can see inside body to give factual information during resuscitation that can be hugely useful in management of the case”.
Dynamic demonstrations on real life models ongoing with PowerPoint presentations followed by skill stations giving hands-on practice to candidates directly from the word go till they were totally proficient and satisfied with the skills, were the highlights of the course.
A total of 18 candidates at Basildon and 10 at Loughborough from all grades and levels including trainees, SASG and consultants and from specialties including EM, Anesthesia, Surgery and one from Psychiatry gave strongly positive feedback.
Dr Sagar Galwankar, Assistant Professor Department of Emergency Medicine University of Florida, USA and Chairman of Academic College of Emergency Experts (ACEE) said “I am delighted with the response for the course and the quality of delegates. I am sure this course will make them more competent in managing emergency cases”.
Dr Godwin Simon was the host organiser at Basildon Hospital. He said “I am pleased with the support I received from the hospital management. It has been an honour to run this brilliant course in Basildon.
Dr Chhabra who attended the course as a candidate said “I found this was an outstanding ultrasound course out of four I have attended till date in OZ, UK & India. Rest of the courses were only big names and highly expensive compared to this course”.
Dr Ramesh Mehta, President BAPIO who supervised the course thanked the faculty consisting of Prof. Sanjiv Bhoi, Dr Deepak Agrawal, Dr Tej Prakash Sinha and Dr Sagar Galwankar. He also thanked Dr Godwin Simon host at Basildon and Dr Raghu Ramaiah the host at Loughborough. Mr Buddhdev Pandya, the BAPIO director for policy provided all practical support.
