Dr. Asiya Zaidi (India)
I would like to thank each and every one at APOST for giving me this wonderful opportunity to be a part of such a good workshop. It not only cleared my concepts but also helped me develop my new found interest in SKULL BASE surgery. I had such a brilliant opportunity to interact with great minds in the field of otolaryngology. This has been possible only because of APOST. The lectures, arrangements and the cadaveric dissection everything was outstanding. The faculty was very supportive.Miss Bonnie especially was very responsible and managed things brilliantly. I would like to congratulate the entire APOST team. Thank you so much for this opportunity. Forever indebted and looking out for more such great opportunities ahead.

Dr. Pham Huu Tien (Vietnam)
This is my first time visiting and joining in an APOST course. I highly recommend this hand-on training workshop because of well-equipment procedure lab, wonderful professor and friendly local staffs. We are very warmly welcomed by Dr In Seok Moon and Dr Michael Tong on first day at Severance Hospital. Then there was a series of presentations by experienced speakers (included local & international surgeons) in the three following days. They presented very new helpful aspects and techniques in Endoscopic ear & Skull base surgery and related issues also. Most of time in afternoon, we did dissection procedures with a very good quality of cadaver. Local staffs took care of us very well whenever we need help. I had a chance to first use some new instruments and practice some procedures that i never had done before such as: ballon dilation, cochlear implant, .... What i learned here will help me a lot to modify my techniques when i do my job in Vietnam. Special thanks to Dr In Seok Moon, Pro Michael Tong & Ms Bonnie. I will definitely apply for a fellowship course in Severance Hospital and also join in another course with APOST in the near future. Once again, Thank you very much!
