Dear Dr. McGinley,
I was an attendee of your Philadelphia MSK conference. I want to thank you for such a great experience. The meeting was perfect, arriving to the pleasant smiles at the registration desk and leaving with a volume of new knowledge far exceeding my expectations.
I have a difficult time deciding the best quality of the program. It could be your ability, and that of your most impressive faculty, to present material to an eclectic audience of various medical backgrounds, from different states and countries, easily understandable to all.
Conceivably it could be the flow of the course with lectures, demonstrations and my favorite, the hands on workshops. Most impressive was the continuous availability of you and Dr. Biswal to answer questions and provide individual instruction. I am sure by the end of the conference you both knew everyone by name and background.
I have been a physician assistant for thirty-six years and found this to be one of the, if not the, best meetings I have attended. I humbly request your permission to submit your name to the American Academy of Physician Assistants and the Physician Assistant in Orthopaedic Surgery Society to present at their national meetings.
I end with a standing O for you and your staff.

Dear Dr. McGinley,
Thank you very much for the phenomenal course. Your presentations were crisp, informative, and well structured. I will always remember seeing you insert a needle into a hidden olive, under ultrasound guidance, in front of an entire audience. I immensely enjoyed all aspects of the course, including the accommodations.
The attendees consisted of a broad cross section of specialties, which provided a diversity of perspective that led to productive questions and discussions. The participants enjoyed the hands-on portion of the course for which you had an appropriate number of machines to allow each person a good deal of direct experience, which could even be carried out simultaneously as you demonstrated.
I appreciated your approach of presenting the literature on both sides of the question and allowing your experience to speak for itself. You crystallized the research succinctly, and were willing to engage the audience, both in the structured lecture settings, and afterwards via one-on-one questions or email. As a Stanford Radiology fellowship trained ultrasonographer, you presented an excellent balance of practical patient experience with pertinent research. Your years of experience teaching and delivering lectures, including at the national level, lent itself to a great course.
I highly recommend your musculoskeletal ultrasound and intervention course to anyone, whatever their level of experience, as both beginners and experts would gain from you knowledge, skills, and excellent teaching.

The McGinley Course
The McGinley course was one of the best courses that I have taken in 25+ years of CMEs. Highlights included the hands on ultrasound with individual instruction by experts, the case presentations, the innovative approach to common problems and easy access to very approachable course instructors. I plan to come to the next course as well.
Hello Dr. McGinley,
I attended your conference in Philadelphia. I view the work you are doing as very cutting edge, and represents a unique future in sports medicine thought, and interventional management.
