#MyBSEcho2022 | ‘I want to learn from the best’

Published 29/06/2022

Mr Dario Freitas, Highly Specialised Echocardiographer at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, shares the importance of education to building strong teams.

Why is education my passion? Let me share a few good reasons with you.

Being willing to learn and share knowledge is probably one of the most amazing experiences we can have in life. Education enables people's potential and brings out the best of yourself and in others around you. Not just personally but as well professionally.

In echocardiography, it can be challenging at times, but I strongly believe that it is crucial in a discipline as complex as ours. It is always a two-way pathway where you are giving but always receiving back. It sets a culture, strengthens bonds and brings the team together. Without it, we wouldn't be able to bring the same excellence to our profession and deliver the same outstanding level of care to our patients.

Having these opportunities in a rich and diverse environment like BSEcho 2022 is an occasion I just cannot miss. At the end of the day, we need it because this is not about how good you are now but I think it's how good you are going to be that really matters.

I want to learn from the best, how about you?
