"The course was fantastic - one of the best, if not the best, in 16 years of medicine and medical school. I have told lots of colleagues who also have do a critical appraisal exam."

"One of the best courses I've been on - structured, no assumed knowledge, interactive but not in a stressful way so free to concentrate without worrying. Speaker was excellent. Feel much better equipped. Workbook helped a lot. I have scrawled round the margins. More confident to tackle exam but also feel I understand basics well as skills for career."

“I thoroughly enjoyed the course and felt that I had finally been taught it by someone who actually understood critical appraisal. I usually leave tutorials on critical appraisal more confused than I started. I have already recommended your course to friends and colleagues both in the UK and Ireland.”
