Iryna Udovenko, Ukraine Educational Grant observership report from Uniklinik Düsseldorf, Germany

Dear Colleagues, I want to share my impressions of visiting the Uniklinik Dusseldorf under the Soe Vision Observership program from 3.08 to 15.08.2023. I am a mother of two small children and with the outbreak of war in Ukraine.

I was forced to leave my home and medical practice and go to Germany. To my great happiness, I managed to get the opportunity to do an internship and study at the Uniklinik Düsseldorf. It was a very interesting two weeks. I saw and even took part in truly exclusive surgical interventions and saw the amazing results of previously operated patients. The healing and learning process proceeds smoothly and naturally. The clinic functions as one, colleagues support and care for each other. It is extremely pleasant to be part of such an organisation. I would like to thank Dr. Professor Geerling and the entire team for their openness and high professionalism.
