    I attended the Family Practice, Comprehensive Suturing, and the Acute Care Skills workshops. I learned a lot during all the workshops. The instructors give you expert-level, real-world knowledge, and skills. I would highly recommend all the workshops!!

  2. Danielle Medvinsky (verified owner)

    I attended the 3 day Family Skills Workshop and I decided to take the ultrasound guided IV class as well. This was probably the most comprehensive class I have ever taken and well worth the flight since there are very few experiences like this in the US. The instructors are the best of the best, they have years under their belt in the fields and are fantastic educators. I would consider taking more classes in the future with them. Thank you so much to the skills on point team! 🙂

  3. Hannah Farrar (verified owner)

    I recently took the Family Practice Skills workshop + suturing class to better prepare for my new role in an urgent care. I highly recommend this class to students, new grads, or NPs/PAs wanting to brush up on their skills. John responded quickly to all questions via email and has extensive knowledge in the field.

    I recently took the Family Practice Skills Workshop in Tampa and couldn’t share enough positive reviews about this course, 5 stars all the way! Tony’s teaching style was nothing short of amazing and I truly feel like I left the weekend with a new arsenal of knowledge and skills to utilize in practice. THANK YOU!

    Five stars, across all categories. I did the two day Family Practice Skills Workshop, and it was worth the travel, time off, and fuss. The entire experience was 100%. There were high quality tools provided, hearty snack and drinks(kept cold in a fridge!), and the catered lunch both days was really good. The teachers were amazing and the content was all very useful to my practice! No fluff, just really great skills and knowledge. Thanks guys!
