MRCS Part B: Reviews

MRCS%20part%20A_edited.jpg

"

The anatomy day was great, very wide range of topics covered and kept it to the essentials for the exam. I found using the models / specimens beneficial to my learning. Things were clearly explained and clarified any questions that we had. I definitely feel more confident going to the exam having done this course.

Again the OSCE course was really helpful. Going over pathology is a key area which may of us struggle with so it was really useful to cover this in an exam situation.

 

I feel prepared going into the exam. The professional actor for communication made it very realistic and presented difficult but approachable scenarios which provide good preparation.
