ABOUT THIS ONLINE COURSE

A participant will learn, amongst other things, about these differences and how to approach litigation in Medical Law practically.

The course consists of various modules, each focusing on a specific requirement of Medical Negligence and aspects of medical law in general.

The material is presented in an interactive and interesting short video format, which is supplemented by written material. Each participant will be expected to test their knowledge by way of a self-assessment after each module and complete a written assignment/portfolio.
