About the course

We know that many candidates find TAS a particularly difficult exam to prepare for using text books alone. Through a combination of online lectures and face-to-face workshops, our elite team of experts will give you a better grasp of the assessment criteria as well as articulate the core knowledge needed to improve your score in this exam.

This blended one-day course has been designed specifically to help delegates tackle the areas that previous candidates have found the most difficult. These include topics such as:

  • Statistics for the paediatrician
  • Pharmacokinetics
  • Embryology in clinical practice
  • Lung function interpretation
  • Neuroanatomy for the forgetful
  • New laboratory methods - a beginner's guide

Delegates will be given access to 15 video lectures before the course. This then provides the faculty, led by Dr Will Carroll, the opportunity to focus on individuals’ questions and concerns in small, less intimidating groups.

The teaching faculty, which is comprised of highly experienced MRCPCH Theory lecturers with a passion and enthusiasm for basic science, will focus on exam technique and help increase your confidence by working through exam-style questions.

Learning aims, objectives and outcomes

  • Understand what most candidates find difficult and how to tackle these areas of knowledge.
  • Know more science and understand how this can be applied to patient care.
  • Know where to access useful resources to support knowledge and revision.
