This two-day course is calculated to be worth a minimum of 60 hours of individual revision.

Professor Enoch was fantastic. It was really helpful to overview the high yield questions. The vast number of topics we got through was helpful in highlighting areas of weakness.

This course was very well structured, and the amount of high yield information was invaluable. The teaching sessions, presentations and certainly the anatomy sessions put everything into perspective and made a big difference to my understanding. I cannot thank you enough!

The teaching lectures were excellent. They were very informative and followed on appropriately from each other. The dissection was really useful too; it was worthwhile going through the main areas. I think it was all useful and very relevant to the exam.
