We have had excellent feedback from delegates attending and are hitting 98%-100% satisfaction for each criteria.
" Faculty are absolutely amazing. Knowledgeable, passionate and kind. Not only did they care about giving maximum knowledge and tips to candidates, they also cared about their well-being. Having human cadavers is a great idea and is an asset to this course. I liked the idea of the dinner on day 2 as a way for candidates and faculty to network."
"This is one of the best courses I have attended. The simulations and models are exceptional and the faculty input invaluable."
"The cadaveric workshop was brilliant, just helped so much conceptualsie the issues and what we were aiming for. The review of the evidence and the review of the controversies are useful heading back to work with these patients and fully inform them of the risks and benefits of all options."
"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."
