“I find that the CSTC sessions although with the primary intention of tutoring candidates to do well in the PLAB exam also primes doctors to become better clinicians. It is very easy to be inspired by the amazing teacher (s) on this program!”

Ideally, one should start this course in the beginning of their preparation if they want to get the most out of it. This course is updated regularly according to NICE guidelines which makes you rely on the information given.”
