Post-class surveys found 100% of attendees would recommend the program to peers. “First of all the mentors were very humble and down to earth. The ease with which they communicated with us was remarkable. Also I felt they were equally engaged and eager to teach us. The facilities, cadavers and instrumentation were top notch.”
