What did last year's attendees think?
"Good mix of lab and clinical experiences. Great approachable team – thank you for being so helpful! Would recommend to my colleagues."
"Great course, friendly atmosphere, very well prepared speakers."
"Good order of presentations in morning and practical work in afternoon. Very well looked after throughout course and in the evening too."
"Overall, a fantastic course and huge thank you to everyone involved."
"Very well organised, fun-filled with a lot of valuable information. I really enjoyed the lectures, case studies especially as in laboratory we do not get to hear the whole background of the patient so it reminded me of the impact laboratories have and how crucial it is to investigate clinical cases."
"Very good course and has made me think how we can change our current practice."
