“With this course, I felt like I really got a good base or foundation of everything that’s current. There’s a lot of anecdotal stuff out there but as a physician, what’s the evidence-based medicine behind it? This course provided a review of some of the things that I knew and a lot of other information that really helped fill in the gaps.”
