Highlights from past participants

'Undoubtedly the best workshop I have been to in 25 years of general practice. Medical educators are a lovelybunch, great sense of humour, very skilled at teaching'.

'Excellent content. Pitched at good level for GPs, particularly Proceduralist GPs. Excellent presenters/medical educators. Nice to have no stressful exams and focus on more scenario practice'.

'This workshop offers a systematic approach to treating the sick child – many thanks much more confident now'.

'This was a very smooth weekend, and worked very well. This seemed to be the consensus among the participants.

Even by late on the second day my enthusiasm was still high'.
