Applications are now open for the Chelsea Clinical Course for clinicians preparing to sit the MRCPCH Part 2 Clinical Examination or DCH Clinical Examination.

Date:
Saturday 16 January 2010

Venue:
Chelsea and Westminster Hospital
369 Fulham Road
London
SW10 9NH

Cost:
£350

This innovative one-day MRCPCH Clinical Course has been specifically designed to focus a candidate's learning on the skills and techniques required to pass the MRCPCH Part 2 Clinical Examination.

The course follows a structured 10-Station OSCE format to replicate the MRCPCH Clinical Examination under exam conditions, with individual feedback incorporated into each station. The skills and experience gained in this course would be equally applicable to candidates preparing for the DCH Examination.

Participants will benefit from:

  • A low candidate to instructor ratio (two candidates per instructor)
  • Clinical and communications stations with real patients
  • Practice and supervision under real-time Examination conditions
  • Individual feedback on each station from experienced tutors
  • Individual question and answer opportunities with Instructors
  • Video scenario teaching
  • The opportunity to experience the Examiners' perspective, an invaluable part of Examination preparation
  • Full catering

This course is the only one of its kind to address all the Examination requirements of the MRCPCH and DCH Clinical Exams, in a tailor-made format allowing personalised supervision and assessment.

We offer a unique service in a central London location, with approachable and experienced staff, and we hope candidates will find the day both educational and enjoyable.
