Thanks to the >200 trainees who completed our Adult Medicine course online this year.

We appreciate your feedback about the course!

Best of luck for your exam preparation and revision.

 

“Loved the course, highly recommend to other trainees.”

“Started from the basics and went through everything slowly but concisely.”

“Overall a fantastic course, thank you for organising it. Was great having the lectures recorded on the website for us to watch in our own time”

“Clear and concise lectures, catered to the required level. High yield. Handbook accompanying the course is excellent.”

“Great course. Makes a complex topic very approachable.”

“This was all so fantastically taught and I learnt a huge amount. Thank you so much.”

“After the course I was happy that I was able to understand the concepts and was able to finally answer the genetic questions that I once dreaded.”

“The speakers were all very engaging and explained concepts well.”

“Great course! Detailed and good basic explanations, excellent case based approaches and I thought these were very engaging.”

“The course content was explained well by the presenters and the course covered high yield topics.”

“I’ve done most of the various BPT topic based courses (renal, immunology, haematology, neurology and statistics). I can wholeheartedly say that the calibre of the genetics course was superior to the other courses. The high standard of the individual lecturers, design and layout of the individual lectures, delivery website and portal were excellent. The posted course book was also excellent and the only feedback I have is very much a personal preference where I find spiral binding easier to manage rather than thermal binding. Thank you for making a difficult topic seem manageable and straightforward. I have not only learnt genetics for the exam but genuinely have learnt genetics for life.”

“Found the course extremely helpful and covered the expected and relevant topics.”

“I liked how it started at the basics and then slowly built on that knowledge. The questions intermingled with the content really helped solidify the content being taught. I also really liked that I could watch the lectures at my leisure.”

“Very clear explanations going through the topics, and good hints and memory aids.”

“Great overview of the essentials needed for understanding genetics. Succinct lecture content and great lecturers. It goes without saying that Prof Delatycki’s chants were the most memorable.”

“Fantastic course, great for both the BPT exam and also improving my knowledge of genetics that underpins so much of clinical medicine.”

“The teachers were very passionate, which made what I previously thought to be a relatively boring topic interesting to listen to. This is the first time I’ve ever understood genetics properly! Will recommend this course to many others going through the exam.”

“Excellent teaching and question work throughs.”

“The enthusiasm of the presenters + repetition of important phrases / concepts was really helpful.”

“Pitched at the right level, now I feel confident to answer the exam MCQs.”

“Easy to understand, great lecturers. Lecture times were reasonable in length. Book was well presented and arrived in time. Wasn’t boring. Concepts covered were highly relevant for the RACP exams/content required.”

“Really great lecturers, lots of practice questions.”

“Thanks so much for an excellent course! Each lecture was well delivered and explained concepts easily from the basics making the course very easy to follow and understand. It was also a very interesting and fun course. Also really appreciate you extending the course access time to help us be able to get through it. Thank you!”

“Really clear explanations. Demonstrated relevance to clinical practice. Very comprehensive.”

“Good lectures with a stepwise approach. Also great amount of practice questions.”

“The teaching is excellent, and the lecturers are very engaging which has made a topic that can be difficult to follow so much easier.”

“Amazing course! Very relevant, speakers are great and easy to understand!”

“Overall, I really loved the course. Specifically, extending the access to the course was very much appreciated along with the extra questions that were made available.”

“As someone who hasn’t studied genetics since medical school, and therefore felt like they were essentially starting from scratch again, this course was great! Everything was explained well, I loved having my own Genetics course book for easy reference. The questions helped keep things focused and consolidate my learning.”

“Hands down would recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn genetics before the exam, or even just have a refresher! (and we all sing your chants in study group, they have stuck!)”

“Taught in a really accessible way, complex concepts were explained really well, the lecturers were very personable and enjoyable to listen to. I actually really enjoyed genetics for the first time, and don’t feel as intimidated by it.”
