Reviews
Our Alumni says
"

My medicine tutor was not only a very qualified doctor but also a very friendly teacher. There is no doubt that I learned so much more than Medicine from him, including what the life of a doctor is like. I will be thankful to him throughout my whole career. Moreover, he let us experience the practical side of Medicine, from examining a patient to analysing x-rays.
