Portfolio Preparation Course – Friday, 26 September 2014

A substantial amount of time is required to review a portfolio and provide specific feedback to individual candidates. Indeed, we have received review requests from a large number of LFOM and MFOM candidates from the 2014 exams. As such, the Institute of Public Health will be running a LFOM and MFOM Portfolio Workshop in September that includes a one-day workshop on how to prepare a successful portfolio and two half-day follow-up sessions where the participants can schedule an appointment with Faculty to discuss the areas of their portfolios that may require amendments prior to submission/re-submission.

Cost of the course:  LFOM – 1,500 AED     MFOM – 2,800 AED
