Superstort tack till er alla. Detta var det tveklöst bästa jag gjort på riktigt länge. Längtar till när det är dags för repetition. Har vuxit som människa efter denna helgen och ville aldrig det skulle ta slut. En riktig livskvalitetshöjare!

Jättebra kurs! Rekommenderar starkt att gå den även om man inte tänkt arbeta som expeditionsläkare då man får med sig mycket som är användbart både i ens kliniska arbete eller på semestern med vännerna!
