This course is designed to provide delegates preparing for the CSA component of the MRCGP exam the opportunity to conduct a simulated surgery within a fully equipped ‘real life’ consulting room, to help them prepare for the exam. All delegates will receive expert feedback on their performance from both senior experienced GPs as well as newly qualified GPs who have recently sat the exam themselves. Numbers are limited to ensure candidates partake in several simulated cases each and receive individual feedback at the end of the session. It is designed for those in the ST3 year or close to attempting the CSA examination. The course will try to replicate the format and room set-up of the actual examination. The scenarios will be drawn from a casebook including but not exclusive to:
