Testimonies from 2019 - 
"Perfect combination of talking and hands on experience, Fantastic faculty - all useful and relevant information and comments, 1:2 ratio faculty to student on practical aspects was invaluable."
"I was looking for an opportunity to gather all important information on this aspect of surgery at hand, in order to start planning my practice on the topic. Furthermore, I was looking for an opportunity for hands-on practice. After this experience, I believe I have all I need to start. Faculty members were very enthousiastic and encouraging, making everything seem approachable. Honestly, one of the best, if not THE best course I have ever attended in the UK so far."
