The ITI Education Week Porto Alegre 2016, held from November 30 to December 3 at Moinhos de Vento Hospital in Porto Alegre, Brazil, was a big success. With 17 participants from Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Peru, the event had a very busy program with topics ranging from extraction to rehabilitation. Two live surgeries were performed and participants were exposed to a variety of content that was also available to them on the Education Week Campus on the ITI Online Academy.
ITI Fellows Profs Maurício Araújo and Alessandro Januário joined the local faculty of Leandro Nunes and Dudu Pittas do Canto and course director Prof. Waldemar Polido. The last day of the Education Week was open to everyone. This year, all eight Study Clubs of the Rio Grande do Sul (RS) state gathered for a day of great lectures headed up by Prof. Dean Morton from the Indiana University School of Dentistry in the USA. Along with the 17 participants of the Education Week, around 120 colleagues attended the one-day conference.
The new format with a one-day congress increased people's awareness of the ITI Education Week Porto Alegre: most new ITI Members enjoyed the program and the venue and showed interest in attending the next Education Week in Brazil.
Special thanks go to all eight Study Club Directors of the RS State, Drs. Dudu Pittas do Canto, Priscila Meneghetti, Leandro Nunes, Rafael Pocztaruk, Rafael Vidal, Julio Nhuch, Gerson Bernd, Diego Zimmermann, Irani Zanettini, Paulo Zanettini and Luiz Antonio Marchioni. A great group that worked together with Prof. Waldemar Polido to make this event a big success.
