    Ethics and video consultation session was really useful. Never come across this before and now know specific answers. Will help me greatly at interview. 

    Dr Khan sat down with me and we went through a mock MMI interview and worked with me on areas I need to improve. I’ve now realised why I did badly last time ...

    I really learnt a lot, and had much to take away with me. I hardly ever feel that I’ve gained so much from a session.

     Taught me a lot that reading books for months have failed to teach me with regards to my interview technique.

    I have passed my interview last week and got an offer. I wanted to say thank you for all your help in preparing me for my interview.

    Excellent teacher. My confidence greatly increased and the tips were really useful. Could not have gained my place without this.

     Thank you for all your help. Saved me a lot of time as all the work was done for us.

    Many opportunities to learn and practice my skills with the doctors. The teaching I received was invaluable when it came to the interview.

    Thank you once again for an excellent session. Learnt lots of skills and I now know what I need to do in the interview.

    I’m glad to tell you that I got an offer. Your teaching was invaluable as the stations in the MMI were almost exactly what we went through.

    Dr Mannan is a fantastic teacher and friend who has played a major part in my becoming of a GP partner.

    Dr Mannan  was very approachable and friendly and gave good insight and explanation of what to expect during my training years.
