Key points and knowledge

This was one of the first courses I can honestly say I have walked away as a confidant clinician and able to apply the skills in practice. The clinical examination skills course also complemented this course and work hand in hand. Dr Yassir Javaid's passion for teaching really shows and his way of teaching is fantastic and keeps you interacted!

Comprehensive and Offered Excellent advice and tips for Best Practice

I am an IP working in Community Pharmacy, I booked this course to review any knowledge gaps and reinforce current practice. I found Dr Javaid a very compelling and engaging speaker. He set out the course content in a clear and constructive way. I found the course excellent and would recommend it to any Community Pharmacist wanting to further their Clinical Diagnostic Skills for Minor Illness.
