The new FRCEM SJP exam
From August 2017, the FRCEM Situational Judgement Paper (SJP) will replace the MRCEM Part C exam as a requirement to go on to Higher Specialist Training in Emergency Medicine. The FRCEM SJP tests examine a candidates non-academic ‘soft skills’ such as decision making, interpersonal relations and professional judgment.
The FRCEM Situational Judgement Paper will contain 120 single best answer questions (SBAQs), each presenting a hypothetical but realistic workplace problem or dilemma and the candidate is asked to choose the most effective response or action from a series of potential answers. The questions will assess the candidate against the Common Competencies as outlined in the RCEM Emergency Medicine Training Curriculum 2015 and address the attributes required of doctors in higher training and beyond: (1) patient focus; (2) problem solving; (3) decision making; (4) team working; (5) time management; (6) self-awareness; (7) professional Integrity and (8) professional development.
As a new exam, there is currently limited experience, little information, and no practice questions for the FRCEM SJP and this, added to the unfamiliar content and style of questions make it very different from the more usual knowledge-based medical exams and likely harder to pass!
