From reading about our first set of instructors, it is clear to see the passion Maverick Medical Education brings to teaching, guiding, and leading medical practitioners to more comprehensive, thorough, and cutting edge care. Our programs and courses are centralized around learning new methods to give your patients the best possible prognosis and treatment. In order to provide quality education, our team must be equally passionate about our goals and have the experience to lean on during teaching time. Our growing number of instructors pull on a vast array of knowledge, and we are excited to introduce them to you in this two part series.
