Dr. Anderson shared what he likes best about IEDLI:

1. The international diversity of the participants.

2. The small group learning approach that enables personalized interaction and sharing of experience and insights.

3. The interactions with the participants during the course in which we are able to discuss common challenges that we face in emergency care delivery.

4. The experience of many participants who arrive at the program thinking that their circumstances and challenges in their home country are unique, and then leave with the view that actually they have an enormous amount in common with colleagues managing EDs around the world.
