I just wanted to convey to you the good news that I passed my FRCS exams. Prior to attending your course, I felt that I lacked confidence in spinal examination techniques. That was mainly due to the fact that I hadn’t worked in a spinal unit in the UK. Your course helped me get on track and face my fear.

The teacher:student ratio was the best ever I have had so far, it allowed time to clear lots of doubts/ questions we had. I benefitted from the variety of patients for clinicals and the weird and wonderful xray collection

Clinical sessions with patients was the best.
