"The travel itinerary afforded little time for reflection, but ample time for in depth discussion.  Seeing how excellent results can be achieved utilizing tactics previously unfamiliar to me, and reasoning through the clinical decisions made with someone from a completely different background, made for a brilliant experience.   I learned many helpful techniques, gained multiple gracious colleagues, and left the United Kingdom motivated to continue learning. I would encourage anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of hip arthroplasty to apply."
