"The practical work I’ve been involved in has been brilliant. I’ve recently handled preserved specimens that helped my learning and understanding of anatomical structures and pathologies. The facilities at Glenside are great too. The campus is picturesque and the simulation suites and consultation rooms are excellent – they provide a learning experience that simulates a real-life workplace scenario really accurately."
