Testimonials

“This course was beyond my expectations! The prerequisites taken were clear and very informative. Erin, Liza, and Dr. Weissbrod were excellent and patient instructors during the hands on practice. I felt very welcomed and supported throughout the entire course and appreciated the dialogue and discussions that took place when practicing. I left feeling excited and eager to learn and work more with a flexible and rigid scope. I’m grateful to have Erin, Liza, and Dr. Weissbrod as resources and I’m looking forward to future courses.”

“FANTASTIC course! I have participated in many certifications and training courses, and this is by far the best I have ever attended! For someone who is a hands on learner this is the perfect set up, by getting to do online course education and showing up the day of the course to immediately get a hands on learning experience and practice scoping. The course, set up of the training and especially the instructors could not be more accommodating of your learning style. Erin and Liza are amazing clinicians, provide you with superior education and training, and are genuinely wonderful people who provide you with all the support and encouragement to be successful. I would highly recommend this course for all the reasons listed above, but above all, the trainers are some of the most sincere people who truly care about going above and beyond to help you succeed.”

“Both the on-line and hands-on courses given by Endo Education were excellent. The instruction was clear, the information was practical and immediately applicable, and both Erin and Liza were gracious in explaining the process and patiently guiding us step-by-step, sharing their resources, and providing us with insights to questions that we didn’t even know we had! The set-up for the course was efficient, and the instructors (also including Dr. Philip Weissbrod) provided patient and specific hands-on instruction from slightly different perspectives, which was helpful. The passion they feel for their work is inspiring, and my colleagues and I left excited to apply what we had learned.”

“This training course through Endo Education was such an enjoyable experience. Erin and Liza are truly experts in their fields and do a great job of teaching this course. They make it a fun and educational experience for everyone, from graduate students to experienced SLPs. It was an honor to have learned how to be a successful endoscopist from these amazing women!”

“Truly, look no further for endoscopy training than Endo Education’s Hands-On Workshop! From the initial introductions and descriptions of the day, I felt completely supported by Liza Blumenfeld and Erin Walsh in my journey to becoming a confident and more competent endoscopist. Erin and Liza’s online and live courses highlight the comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic information we can glean from endoscopy, with key focus on an optimal patient experience. Because of intimate groups and three instructors (Dr. Philip Weissbrod also joined Erin and Liza), we received a unique hands-on experience to discover our own approach style to endoscopy. Open dialogue among volunteers, participants, and instructors was highly encouraged throughout the training, providing great feedback on improving our passes. I feel more prepared to administer FEES and voice evaluations having been mentored by Liza, Erin, and Dr. Weissbrod! Grateful to have them as a forever resource.”

“I have attended two endoscopy trainings through Endo-Education and I cannot speak highly enough of my experience.  The classes were kept small and intimate, the instructors were excellent, and most importantly, I now feel comfortable passing both rigid and flexible endoscopes.  I couldn’t ask for anything else. Thanks for putting on such a great course!”

“I loved how organized and hands on the course was. The instructors were friendly and explained the process so easy and simple. I also appreciated the volunteers since they also gave very good feedback. I felt it was very safe and welcoming. It was a great learning environment. Thanks for the case studies as well! I think they were helpful to discuss especially for students.”

“The SLPs at Endo Education, Erin and Liza, are wonderful hosts and trainers. They made us all feel very comfortable. Dr. Salgado came to administer the numbing medicine. We had eight trainees, and we scoped each other using the flexible nasendoscope. Erin and Liza provided hand over hand guidance when needed. We observed the abduction/adduction movement of the vocal folds and arytenoids during speaking and pitch glides, and observed swallowing function while consuming yogurt. We also used a rigid oral scope with videostroboscopy, to scope each other, and also to perform a voice evaluation for two students from the music program at SDSU. We learned about sterilization procedures in the hospital versus private practice settings, and protocols to document which scope was used with a specific patient or client. I would highly recommend the live endoscopy training at Endo Education! “
