Student Profile

Bola Ola

"The course allows comparison of approaches across countries in a way that facilitates the development of best practices among students for their own career and location. I have taken from the programme confidence, and professionalism in addiction. I had the opportunity to plan my study time around the rest of my day. I was able to study and work when I was at my peak energy. It was easier for me to concentrate because I had no distraction by other students and classroom activity. I strongly recommend this course. For people thinking about doing the IPAS, I will tell them they are embarking on a great journey. And the product of this excursion is evidence-based enlightenment. This is because the expedition is with a network of internationally recognized clinicians, researchers and clinical teachers who have commitment to excellence in prevention and treatment in addiction, and who have dedication to supporting and strengthening national and international ventures in addiction."
