A course for advanced practitioners in medicine - the practical sessions were very useful to have the tips of our speakers. I had a great time!

Marie Desfarges, Germany

Internal Medicine Challenges for Advanced Practitioners – A 2-Day Interactive & Practical Course - May 2018

 

Lectures were easy to understand and practical lessons were really helpful in putting the theory to practice.  It’s much easier to practice with specimens and with a specialists watching over – really good!

Anna Lehto, AitoVet, Finland

 

Interaction and practical wetlabs were fantastic.  Relaxed attitude of speakers - practical discussions were priceless
