About the course
This one-day course will allow you to become more familiar with the DCH (Diploma of Child Health) Clinical exam assessment criteria. You will gain a greater understanding of the key skills required and the pitfalls to avoid. Rather than a mock exam it focuses on exam techniques and how to prepare for each station.
The teaching faculty comprises highly experienced consultant paediatricians. This elite team will help you to have a better grasp of the assessment criteria as well as identify and articulate the skills needed to succeed in the DCH exam.
There will be interactive workshops, small group work, discussions and role play. It will not involve real patients. This course will provide a safe learning environment to encourage you to ask questions of the examiners and share good practice.
You will receive a copy of the Clinical Cases in Paediatrics, DCH Examinations text book as part of the course fee. The text book can be posted to delegates who book on or before Sunday, 23rd September 2018. Delegates who book after that date will receive the text on the day of the event.
