Frequently Bought Together
The course was great.
A very practical and applicable course with Lee. Extremely clarifying for someone who feels I received little to no training in research during my training. This is empowering.
Great course on research and gives me a better understanding on how to read research and be better able to communicate this to patients.
Very clear and pertinent information
This was one of the best ProD seminars I've done. I was initially expecting it to be incredibly dry, but Dr Rubin is an engaging and highly competent teacher, and the literature review was enlightening.
Helpful course for understanding research
I really enjoyed Lee's presentation style and personal experience.
