Attending this course was worth every second of my time as it was excellently organised and the effort put into making everything run smoothly was evident. I thoroughly enjoyed participating in it as it was quite interactive. For example, we were provided with a suturing kit, which we could practice on and all the demonstrations and explanations were very beneficial and understandable. The virtual operations were insightful as well. Overall, this was an amazing experience and thank you very much to everyone who has organised it 🙂
