FRCEM Intermediate SAQ Course TrainersThe FRCEM Intermediate Certificate Short Answer Question (SAQ) Paper is intended to test a candidates application of Emergency Medicine knowledge. This is done through 60 SAQ questions 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.

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. There will be a focus on teaching those topics most important for the exam itself and on up-to-date clinical guidelines in use in the UK.

MRCEM Part C/OSCE  Course (Dublin, Ireland):

Next course dates: TBA Contact us for sample course programme.

Course leads: Dr Ian Stell & Dr Mathew Hall

Venue : TBA

Bromley Emergency Courses are delighted to have been invited to Dublin, Ireland by the Irish Emergency Medicine Trainees Association (IEMTA) to deliver their new two day MRCEM Part C/OSCE Course on the  3rd and 4th September 2016.

The MRCEM Part C/OSCE examination is a comprehensive test of a candidates clinical knowledge and skills as well as their communication, attitudes and behaviors. It consists of 16 consecutive OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) stations, plus two 'rest' stations. At each station the candidate must read a brief scenario, then enter 'role play' mode to manage a simulated clinical situation. These situations mimic the breadth of Emergency Medicine practice from managing a trauma team, resuscitating a sick child, taking a difficult history, suturing a wound or dealing with an angry relative. The examination relies heavily on actors and equipment to simulate real-life problems.

There is no doubt that the MRCEM Part C 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, 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.
