This course has been a fun and interestingly informative workout for me as engineer. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this amazing workshop. Many thanks🙏🥂

The course was very insightful and have learnt a great deal which would impact positively on my clinical engineering practice.

This Course is one of a kind. Very comprehensive as it was stated at the beginning of the course welcome section. Every detail of the course was relevant to and up to date. Course contents, topics, examples were well tailored to help have a good grasp and understanding in the program. I will recommend this program to Biomedical Engineer in Ghana and beyond. I am very thankful to participate in this course and I Look forward to more training programs from Hospital Engineering Academy
