Trainee feedback:

'Excellent overview of areas required for ST3 practice. Extremely friendly and approachable faculty who were willing to honestly discuss view, opinions, trouble shoot clinical and non-clinical issues and offer useful advice. No faults or complaints, I've never been on a course this useful, well thought out or run.'

'It was a great introduction to the speciality and a nice way to catch up with fellow trainees and engage with trainers from all over the country. Attending this course prior to starting ST3 is appropriate, as it gives a good basis to build knowledge on.'

'Small tutor to delegate ratio, a variety of tutors across specialty/age/background ie. gender, opportunity for socialising and networking at course dinner, good having the educational and social/accomodation components in the same location'
