"Excellent feedback and very good standard achieved overall."
"I found the course excellent; I had never covered any nutrition on my course and would thoroughly recommend it to fellow junior doctors and medical students."
"I enjoyed the whole course, I wish it had been longer."
"The course was very useful and very well laid out. It was very accessible and informative and clearly defined the information that you needed to take away from the course."
"I found the course lectures very useful. I will be able to refer to that knowledge in the future."
"The tests at the end of each module really helped me to see how much I had learned. I could then go back and review items that I didn't do so well on."
