  6. Although every effort will be made to provide the best experience of intraoperative echocardiography in cardiac surgery cases, we cannot guarantee that a fixed number of cardiac surgeries will be performed during the Preceptorship week and cannot be held responsible for surgery cancellations for whatever reasons. In the event of cancelled surgeries or low case volumes, we will hold didactic teaching with emphasis on interactive sessions and case reviews with expert faculty.
