Dr. Oh is the principal author of "The Echo Manual," which has become a standard textbook for all who are interested in learning echocardiography. Now in its third edition, "The Echo Manual" has been translated into six languages and the fourth edition is in progress. Dr. Oh enjoys teaching at various national and international meetings. His favorite teaching is daily contact with residents, fellows and younger physicians, since he also learns a lot from them.
