Minor obstacles were experienced during the course, all of which were resolved quickly by the local organizing team.
Under the leadership of National Course Chair Prof. Kanora Ngin and Tour Phot Sin, and International Course Chair, Dr Michael Wren (Australia), 42 participants benefitted from the education event.
The AO Alliance Asia Steering Committee meeting took place the day after the conclusion of the course. Committee members, including Prof. Ramesh P. Singh (Nepal) and AO Alliance Asia Medical Advisor Prof. Ram K. Shah (Nepal), joined as additional faculty, complementing the expertise of local faculty. Prof. Singh became a grandfather during the event. His daughter, who lives in Canada, gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Siya Singh Chabukswar.
Beside those remarkable participant outcomes, the local organizing team gained significant experience running the course without any external support supplying workstations for the practical exercises. This will go a long way towards achieving self-sufficiency and cost-efficiency and will allow them flexibility in course execution.
