“The 12-week challenge has been a great way to consolidate my knowledge of cardiac pathology. Ruth is such an engaging presenter and really encourages you to have a go in a way that doesn’t feel so intimidating. She is so knowledgeable and is really versatile in the way she can explain things so that everyone can understand. Thanks so much, it’s been super helpful.
