Q. There are over the shoulder workshops and hands-on workshops at BHIDE. What is the difference?
A. Over the shoulder workshops would consist of Dr. LeSage working on his private practice patient while slowly demonstrating and answering all your questions about a procedure you requested to observe. You could observe them looking over his shoulder in the state of the art room teaching operatory or see it through the observatory glass of the institute or while enjoying relaxing as it is broadcast into the teaching room.
