What others say about this masterclass

Dr. Abisola Oliyide (GB)
“The discussions from the lectures were rich with diverse insights and experience of both the faculty and the fellows…The case presentations by the fellows were very enlightening as these showed that although management of the same condition may differ per country (based on expertise, technology and experience available), the overall goal was to achieve the best possible outcome for the patient…I found the lecture “Ablative therapies for renal cancer” interesting as these therapies are not routinely offered at the centre back home. I was able to gather a lot of information based on the expertise of the faculty.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to be in Salzburg, gain new friends, and improve my clinical practice with insights one cannot simply find in just any literature. I highly commend the faculty and staff for the seamless organization of the masterclass. I have learned a lot from the highly-experienced faculty who were willing to share their knowledge, tips and tricks.” Read Dr. Oliyide’s full report here.

Dr Wally Mahfouz (EG)
“The masterclass was not only compact and concise but also provided updates. The interactive discussions encouraged the participants to comment and actively join the discussions. The faculty members were not only cordial but also responded to every question that was asked. Oncological topics included renal tumors, prostate, testicular and penile cancers and genomics. Andrology topics included male infertility and male sexual dysfunctions.”

Dr Remigius Andrew (TZ)
“Participating in this masterclass was one of the best ever experiences in my carrier as a urologist. The workshop which featured case presentations by the fellows was fantastic and well organised and served as an eye opener regarding the management of urological patients in different countries. I presented a case on testicular tuberculosis and received enthusiastic comments from my co-fellows. The discussion also prompted us to share our hospital experiences.”

Dr Francisco Dos Santos Botelho (PT)
“One remarkable feature of this masterclass was its truly international audience with fellows from almost 30 different countries who shared various viewpoints and experiences. There was also easy access to faculty members, enabling the participants to discuss issues or ask follow-up questions.”
