"I do want to state that participating in the multimorbidity-course was, by far, the best learning experience I have ever taken part of. I enjoyed the active participation, the professionalism of the lecturers, the sharing of knowledge, the calm atmosphere, the pleasant warm welcome from staff and students, and of course the international background of both lecturers and students."
