Testimonials

  • “I think Australians have done exceptionally well this year because of our ability to access the NZ 2- week course online. Due to COVID and the 2-week course being held online, a significant portion of us were able to attend. I strongly believe this course gave us the edge to perform well on the exam. This is evidenced by the Australian Paediatric exam pass rate of 92% this year - the highest it has ever been in 10 years as per the FRACP website of published exam results. This is incredible!! On average, 20 - 30% more Australian candidates passed this year compared to any other year!” – Trainee from Victoria, AU (sat and passed the DWE in Feb. 2021, took both courses)
  • “It was well organised, dependable, and the content was at the right level. I found the practise exams/questions really pushed me, and helped me get into gear. 

    I also really enjoyed and appreciate the atmosphere that you, and all the other lecturers, created. It was calm, welcoming and fun. It was a hard year, made even harder with Covid. Thank you for adapting and still including us!” – Trainee from Sydney, AU (sat and passed the DWE in Feb. 2021, took both courses)
  • “The weekly course was invaluable in keeping me accountable and on track with studying! Obviously a lot of effort goes into the lectures and trying to make them as targeted as possible, which I found very useful and high yield. So grateful to have done both the weekly and residential courses. 

    I loved the monthly MCQs and felt the practice questions adequately reflected the challenging questions in the exam!” – Trainee from NSW, AU (sat and passed the DWE in Feb. 2021, took both courses)
  • “I would like to add that the day we received results I was terrified; my biggest comfort and reassurance was remembering the number of wonderful speakers in your course who openly admitted they had failed the DWE. It reminded me that failing wouldn't make me a bad doctor.

    Thank you again for all your hard work. The course was fantastic.” – Trainee from Adelaide, AU (sat and passed the DWE in Feb. 2021, took Intensive Two-Week Course)
  • “Thank you very much to you and all of the course staff, I did both the teaching programme and the 2-week intensive and it was the best decision I made for exam prep. It was my first attempt as well, which I think speaks to the quality and quantity of the content.

    Please also pass on my thanks to Dr Simone Watkins, in the introductory lecture she recommended Rudolph's over Nelson and I was very glad I made the switch. The concise nature of the book worked far better for me than Nelson and was just what I needed to accelerate my study.

    Thank you again, I hope everyone has been well, and I'll be recommending both courses to all my colleagues who are prepping for the written :)” – Trainee from Brisbane, AU (sat and passed the DWE in Feb. 2021, took both courses)
  • “Thank you very much to you, Prof Grant, Simone and all of the team that helped with coordinating the course and giving the great lectures. Of the various resources and courses I did in preparation yours was by far the best one and I am recommending it to future candidates.” - Trainee from Sydney, AU (sat and passed the DWE in Feb. 2021, took Weekly Teaching Programme)
  • “Thank you for all your work during both the weekly teaching programme and the residential course. The whole team was nothing short of amazing in helping guide us through the preparation for the exams.

    I found both courses very useful to help guide my study and provide a sound foundation of what topics to focus on. I found the multiple choice questions- both the monthly ones as well as the ones covered in individual lectures extremely helpful to make me prepared to sit the real thing." – Trainee from ACT, AU (sat and passed the DWE in Feb. 2021, took both courses)
  • “The intensive 2 weeks of lectures were amazing and contributed hugely to my result. And so I also want to express my utmost gratitude to all the lecturers for making such exam-relevant, concise and engaging content.” – Trainee from Melbourne, AU (sat and passed the DWE in Feb. 2021, took Intensive Two-Week Course)
  • “Thank you for organising such a wonderful course. The course definitely helped me in passing. I loved the online format as it meant that I could re-watch lectures closer to the exams. I could also pause lectures and google concepts that I wasn't sure about to ensure I got the most out of the lectures. I think future year groups would benefit from the same online format if possible.” – Trainee from Sydney, AU (sat and passed the DWE in Feb. 2021, took Intensive Two-Week Course)
  • “I found the course very useful to cover topics to a level that was appropriate, but mostly to keep me on track and motivated. The monthly quizzes kept me honest and it was nice to know a specialist could answer any questions I had.” - Trainee from Perth, AU (sat and passed the DWE in Feb. 2021, took Weekly Teaching Programme)
