Event description

Description

We are delighted to confirm we are running this hugely popular course for a second time following the pilot course in January 2019 and now endorsed by the Welsh Surgical Society! This time we have thought about the impact that sitting the FRCS has on your bank balance and have reduced the course cost to make sure you are not left too out of pocket.

Venue: National Imaging Academy Wales, Pencoed Business Park, Pencoed, CF35 5HY (15 mins drive from Cardiff- located just off the M4). Plenty of free car parking
