“I have attended four courses at IDEA. Without exception, the courses have been excellent.The presenters have been excellent as have been their presentations. The material was immediately able to be integrated into my practice. The small class size allowed close interaction with the speaker, but also of benefit was the availability of time to discuss cases with the other attendees."
