ESO Department to Department Visit Programme
“I participated in morning ward rounds and discussions of the possible subtype of stroke, necessary diagnostic approaches, treatment options and secondary prophylaxis. It was my pleasure to observe the close cooperation between doctors of different specialties in the clinic, especially on the stage of the search of the most appropriate method of treatment. It was interesting to compare Ukrainian and Italian Medical systems for the benefit of the patient.
This visit was very fruitful for me not only in clinical, but also in scientific aspects. I got acquainted with the research projects that are performed now in the Stroke Department, we discussed some future joint projects and works.”

About ESO Department to Department Visit Programme
The ESO Department to Department Visit Programme is offered to young physicians and scientists to support a short visit of 1 week to a European department or laboratory. Awardees can choose to use the award as contribution to a longer visit. ESO will support up to 8 young physicians/scientists annually with a grant of maximum 1,000 EUR per applicant.
The programme aims to provide insight into stroke departments outside the applicant`s home country. The short visit is an important step to help young physicians and scientists establish contact with centres with potential for future research and job opportunities.
