Newcastle Medicine
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really enjoy the case style of the course. I think it helps emphasize learning points on the course. The early clinical exposure is also great. The one reason I gave less stars is because of the way the Covid situation was handled and the uncertainty that came with coming back last year as well as this year.
