Critical Appraisal Bespoke Course

The Critical Appraisal Company provides a bespoke skills training service. Bespoke events are tailored to exact requirements and are outstanding value for money. Our customers range from small groups of doctors and dentists preparing for exams to entire departments of pharmaceutical companies and hospitals. We speak at CPD meetings, conferences and workshops.

Your agenda

We can teach you everything about critical appraisal. The agenda can be adjusted to spend more time on topics of your choosing.

Your location

Venues have ranged from hospital meeting rooms to the headquarters of major pharmaceutical companies.

Your source material

The examples we use to illustrate key concepts can be replaced by your clinical papers, making the course more focused on your clinical area.

Your saving

Bespoke events are excellent value for money. We charge a flat speaker fee so it isn’t more expensive to train more delegates.

Available as virtual training

Why not try organising a WebEx training session? Our team will be happy to discuss your requirements and tailor a session to meet your objectives.

Organising a bespoke course

Organising a bespoke critical appraisal training course is a simple process. The Critical Appraisal Company has worked with many groups and organisations over the years. We know a lot about the needs and expectations of our customers. Our aim is to use our experience to make the booking process as easy as possible for you and make sure the event exceeds your expectations.

Send us some preliminary details

Use the contact form to send us some basic information about your requirements, such as possible dates for the event, the location, the estimated number of delegates and the reason for the training (e.g. exam revision, professional development).

Discuss and agree the details

We will contact you by phone to discuss your requirements and answer any questions you may have. We’ll also send you a list of the options available and a price list. There is usually an exchange of emails to finalise the event agreement. You are under no obligation to proceed and you may take as long as you wish deciding on the details.

Sign an event agreement

When you’re happy with the event agreement, we require you to return a signed copy. Once we have received the signed agreement, the event is confirmed. We will issue an invoice which is payable by cheque or bank transfer.
