"This was my first online course experience through AAPEducation and overall was surprised as to the ease of my learning.

The format was really digestible and non-threatening and the multiple forums used, including both lecture-style presentation and group work using breakout rooms, worked well.

Overall Ebonie’s teaching style reflects what everyone wants with a learning experience – great information which, in its essence, is directly relatable to clinical practice. Many thanks, Ebonie!!

For me, this has been a stand out the course and now I definitely feel like I am walking confidently on firm ground when assessing and treating lower limb tendinopathy, and the differentiating peritendenitis!

I encourage all interested people to complete this course."

“I recently completed the lower limb tendinopathy course presented by Dr Ebonie Rio through the online format.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and its content and have come away with a clear understanding of how to assess, correctly diagnose, treat and rehab tendinopathies. Ebonie’s style of teaching is easy to follow and it was great to run through her load management techniques for rehabilitation programs she uses in her own clinical practice - she is a wealth of knowledge.

I highly recommended this course and will certainly not confuse peritendenitis with tendinopathy again!”
