Online course: Foundations in Medico-legal Practice

The Foundations in Medico-legal Practice course that SAMLA offered in 2018 was a resounding success. As all the presentations and Q&A sessions were recorded, we are now able to share this online version with countless more professionals who are in, or wish to start, their medico-legal careers.
