Season's Greetings and Thank You from CTEC

My team and I wish to extend our sincere thanks to every one of our Convenors, Faculty and supporters for their part in a successful 2023 at CTEC. Your support has been instrumental in CTEC's achievements over the past 12 months, and in furthering the expertise of the more than 2000 Australasian medical professionals who trained at CTEC this year. 

Before our team finishes up for the year, I'd like to share our 2023 highlights with you, and a selection of participant testimonials which emphasised the value of your support.

On behalf of CTEC Senior Lecturers Clinical Associate Professor Hairul Ahmad and Dr Anand Trivedi and the CTEC team, I wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

We look forward to welcoming you to CTEC once more in 2024.
