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!
