FRCEM Primary Exam Preparation Course:

Dates:  TBA. 

Course leads: Dr Mathew Hall & Dr Ian Stell

Venue: Aster MedCity, Kuttisahib Road, South Chittoor

The FRCEM Primary Examination (formerly MRCEM Part A) will examine the candidates knowledge of the key basic sciences that underpin the practice of Emergency Medicine. It will consist of 180 single best answer questions (SBAs) where the candidate must pick the one correct answer from five possible answers to each question (often called 'best of five' questions). Passing the new examination will require a broad and detailed knowledge of the basic medical sciences, along with a sound understanding of how these relates to emergency medicine.

Our full two day FRCEM Primary course offers an intensive two day immersion in the key basic sciences required to pass this exam. The course includes:

  • Lectures on all the key FRCEM basic sciences topics
  • Highly experienced faculty, all with years of experience of the teaching the RCEM Basic Science curriculum.
  • Extensive practice in the new single best answer ('best of five') question format
  • Comprehensive course manual.

FRCEM Intermediate SAQ Course:

Dates:  TBA
Course leads: Dr Ian Stell and Dr Mathew Hall

Venue: Aster MedCity, Kuttisahib Road, South Chittoor
P.O. Cheranelloor, Kochi, Kerala 682027, India

The FRCEM Intermediate Certificate SAQ Paper (formerly MRCEM Part B) is intended to test a candidates application of Emergency Medicine knowledge. This is done through 60 short answer questions (SAQs) covering the breadth of Emergency Medicine practice as outlined in the 2015 RCEM Emergency Medicine Curriculum. Questions will carry three marks each and likely require the interpretation of clinical cases and accompanying clinical data such as ECGs, blood test results, clinical pictures, X-rays and CT scans. Answering the questions will require a thorough familiarity with the presentation and  management of emergency cases - adult, paediatric, medicine, surgery and trauma - as well as anesthetics, intensive care medicine, practical procedures and the common competencies expected of Emergency Physicians.

Our intensive two day FRCEM Intermediate SAQ Course will take you through the required knowledge for the Intermediate SAQ paper in a series of lectures given by our experienced faculty of Emergency Physicians and using a large number of practice exam questions. The course includes:

  • Lectures on all the key FRCEM Intermediate clinical topics
  • Focus on up-to-date clinical guidelines in use in the UK
  • Experienced UK faculty, all consultants and senior registrars with years of experience of Emergency Medicine teaching
  • Extensive practice in answering Intermediate style SAQs, all with explanations and written model answers.
  • Exam tips and discussion -  a dedicated lecture on the new Intermediate exam and how best to approach it.

MRCEM Part C/OSCE Course: 

Dates: TBA. 
Course leads: Dr Shwetha Rao and Dr Ian Stell

Venue: Aster MedCity, Kuttisahib Road, South Chittoor
P.O. Cheranelloor, Kochi, Kerala 682027, India

There is no doubt that the MRCEM Part C/OSCE examination is a tough exam. According to the College about 70% of UK trainees pass the exam, while only about 25% of non-trainees pass. Good communications and other 'soft' skill are of paramount importance, but often overlooked and the cause of failure. As a result the exam is particularly challenging for those lacking a training in communication skills as expected for UK practice, and those who are not familiar with OSCE style examinations.

Following from our 10 yrs experience running highly regarded MRCEM Part C courses in the UK and internationally, our new two day MRCEM Part C/OSCE course provides candidates with even more OSCE teaching and practice in preparation for the real exam. A focus throughout on good communication and improving the candidates 'soft skills' further increase chances of success. You wil be taught by our highly experienced faculty, all practicing Emergency Medicine Senior Registrars or Consultants with a track record of OSCE or simulation training.
