'First and foremost, I want to say a huge thank you for organizing such a brilliantly structured and designed course at PYB. The teaching was of exceptional quality - everything from theory to everyday practicalities was covered with great breadth and enough depth to get your feet wet. I can appreciate the enormous effort that goes into developing and honing something like this. The success simulation exercise at the end just showed how much all the delegates had learnt within a matter of days. Almost invisibly all the major principles from he past few days came together into a tangible outcome.

I can honestly say this is one of the best examples of medical education I've ever witnessed and had the pleasure of being a part of. '
