Why I love to teach
I noticed the bottleneck in learning echo when I was training at the Medical University of Vienna, which is why I founded Medmastery. I wanted to create a platform where medical experts from around the world could help teach clinical skills to address the gaps in continuing education. I’m passionate about teaching and I love taking difficult concepts and making them super easy so that everyone can understand them.
