Selected comments from participants

"Well organised and delivered. The scientific content and level of presentation was
excellent. The staff support was good. Social programme was excellent and helped
to knit the delegates who originated from such diverse geographic and cultural
backgrounds. A strongly recommended course."
"This Postgraduate Course was one of the best educational courses that I have ever
seen. Both quantitatively and qualitatively, it was well and highly organised in a warm
and easily adaptable environment. It was gathering all nations from around the world
under the umbrella of research, friendship and rheumatology."
