FRCEM Situational Judgement Paper
Study for the FRCEM exams online
About the 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 candidate’s 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, which the candidate is required to choose the most effective response or action towards. The questions will assess the candidate against the Common Competencies as outlined in the RCEM Emergency Medicine Training Curriculum 2015 and addresses 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.
