I enjoyed this course very much and I definitely feel it was effective. The instructors all kept things fun and enjoyable. I really appreciate all of the opportunities offered to the students to study. It feels like the class flew by and we learned a lot in two months. All of the instructors were very knowledgeable and shared their real life stories with us. Thank you for providing this service.

I really enjoyed this class. This was my 1st step towards emergency medicine. Now I realize that this is what I love. All the teachers...made this class memorable. The teachers were able to take the book and add a ton of personal experiences and practical applications. All the teachers encouraged questions and made this a great environment for learning.

One of the amazing elements of this course has been the extensive roster of instructors we have had the privilege to learn from. The instructors were not only knowledgeable, but relayed the information in an interesting, and often humorous way. No matter the circumstances, each instructor taught with obvious commitment and dedication to teaching.
