  • Dr. Sule Omeiza Yakubu, Fellowship in Intensive care Medicine - '18

    The operational system of Medvarsity is efficient and excellent, especially the response from your staff for student’s concerns is prompt and timely. African health professionals can benefit more from Medvarsity courses that need contact programs by having branches in African countries. I benefited immensely from these course. I had wish to take more courses and refer my friends but the main challenge remains the difficulty getting Indian visa, hence the need to consider having branches of Medvarsity in African countries. Thanks.

  • Dr. Jayavardhan Gaddam, Fellowship in Intensive care Medicine - '18

    It is very useful to all doctors whether they are MD or MBBS.

    Regarding my course what I did from Medvarsity, it was great and a new experience for me. The materials provided by the course was very informative and useful in our clinical practice. I have shared my experiences with my friends and I found that they are also interested in these courses. I am very excited to join the contact program of Medvarsity in coming days.
