Home: Testimonials

This course went through communication skills, mock exams on comm skills, portfolio review, portfolio example from current trainees and a clinical lecture. The organisers (Omer and Ibtesham) both appear very experienced and knowledgeable in these areas. It was great gaining insight from them sharing their experience. The mocks and portfolio review were chaired by trainees who gave very constructive feedback. Overall, the course was very worthwhile.
