COURSE FORMAT

  1. The course will be presented in a series of Saturday morning interactive workshops.
  2. Each topic shall be presented by a registrar under the supervision of a consultant.
  3. Each presentation should include illustrative case examples and questions for discussion, which will account for at least one third of the allocated time. A copy of the PowerPoint presentation should be emailed to Dr Madigoe at least 2 weeks before the workshop.
