Online materials will be available for the delegate to use 6 weeks prior to the face to face sessions. This will include presentations, videos, reading, interactive sessions and case studies.
Delivered by practicing clinicians and experts in their field, the face to face days will be highly practical. Real life examples and industry case studies will be used to aid discussions focussed on underwriting and claims, covering all lines of business including life, critical illness and income protection.
