"The first GCP course I did via the Siyantinga PDP  ignited a passion for clinical research. Subsequent courses have enhanced my career and inspired me to do things I never dreamed possible. I am acutely aware that I am part of something great and am so proud to be able to contribute to groundbreaking research."
