From the second you walk into our course you will feel at home. From the free coffee and snacks the warm atmosphere and genuineness of the teachers it will all just feel right. We keep our classes small, so that each student may get full attention. We get to know each student and maintain long term relationships and follow ups. We have helped many of our alumni get into residencies following their success at our course. Once you take a course with us you are like family. It is also not uncommon to have top performers come back and be part of our course once they have passed their exams and achieved high performance. We find these previous students are extremely helpful, since they have a first hand on experience of what our course is all about.
