"I am sending this letter to thank you and your team for the beneficial and well organized lung Tx academy, we learned a lot, ''shared'' your large experience and opened new areas for further development in our program.
Your warm reception and care bypassed Vienna cold weather, fortunately it did not ended as ''theoretical course'' as we participated in a lung Tx with your talented surgeon, Dr Jose Matilla who was very cooperative.
Thanks for Mrs. Monika Puerhringer for the excellent organization and help.
Finally I am really impressed with the high clinical, theoretical and communication skills levels of your residents; Thomas and Alberto Benazzo, that shows how you are great bosses in a great university.
Looking forward for more cooperation with you, please accept my warm regards."

"Thank you for all your effort, guidance and teaching to our whole team during the week of the lung transplant academy. I had a truly amazing week in Vienna and learned so much from your whole team on all aspect: implant surgery, supportive management in theatre, harvest, the theory behind lung transplantation and so much more. I was certainly impressed with the willingness and ability of the whole team to pull us into the learning and work regarding lung transplantation. It is not often that such a successful team, is also open towards teaching others. It does not go unnoticed and we are truly appreciative of it all. Kind regards and many thanks"

"Ich möchte mich noch einmal ganz herzlich fur den einzigartigen Kurs letzte Woche bedanken. Ich habe wirklich viel gelernt und konnte vieles mit Ihren Kollegen und den anderen Teilnehmern besprechen. Auch die Tatsache, dass wir sowohl mehrere Tx, sowie procurement beiwohnen durften war phantastisch.
Ich bin mir im klaren, dass der Kurs nur durch immense Vorbereitung, Teamarbeit und Ihren persönlichen Einsatz so exzeptionell durchgeführt werden konnte. Wahrscheinlich werde ich noch andere Kollegen in zukünftige Kurse schicken. Vielen Dank noch mal und alles gute fur ihre berufliche und private Zukunft. Mit besten Grüßen,"
