      "The demonstrators were very knowledgeable and extremely personable"
      "The small group sizes, well organised topics per station, very knowledgeable faculty and structured style for each station worked very well. "
      "It was very beneficial to see the anatomical pro-sections in 'real life' rather than reading a text book."
